WHAT is the Homestead Mailing list:
This list is a friendly meeting place for owners and users of
Commodore Business Machines 8-bit hardware, including the PET, VIC-20,
C-64, C-128, C-16, Plus/4, and other Commodore 8-bit CPU computers and
peripherals. This list does NOT support the Commodore Amiga, PC
or Colt lines.
Messages in the list shall deal with items of direct interest to
owners and users of Commodore 8-bit CPU machines. These may include
features, applications (both hardware and software), problems, repairs,
discoveries, programming (ML, BASIC, or other languages),
modifications, publications, sales or trades of hardware and legally
owned software, etc.
Messages that do not fit the above are "Off Topic" and shall not be
posted in this list. If a conflict arises, the moderator's best
judgement shall prevail.
Examples of things that are forbidden in this list include, but are not
limited to, the following. If someone finds a new way to annoy all and
sundry, a new category will be added.
PIRACY - Discussion of the ILLEGAL acquisition of copyrighted software
or sending copyrighted software through the echo against the authors
expressed wishes is forbidden.
PERSONAL ATTACKS (FLAMES) - You may disagree with the viewpoint of
other users. Do so politely and without "Ad Hominem" comments.
OBSCENITY - Language should be appropriate for the age and gender mix
of our participants.
PERSONAL (CHAT) MESSAGES - Personal messages, not remotely related with
Commodore computers, are "Off Topic".MODERATION:
The moderator will usually reply to violations thru the list itself.
This is due primarily to keeping an atmosphere of openness in
moderation. So others will know that the issue has been addressed.
If a member becomes 'moderated', their Emails will not appear on the
list until after they have been vetted.
Continued violations will result in the member being banned from
posting to the list.Emails that have been rejected by the moderator will be returned to
the sender with a message that their message has been rejected.
