Links to websites are welcome, if they contain news regarding the Playstation, that could not easily be posted to the group otherwise.
Reviews, hints, tips and cheats are welcome, however spoilers should be protected with spoiler space of between 10 and 25 lines. Long reviews or solutions (100 lines or more) should be placed on a web page, and its URL posted.
Discussions related to the act of piracy are forbidden, as they relate to an activity illegal under UK law, and invariably lead to long and unfriendly threads in the newsgroup. Discussions of the politics of software pricing and supply, or advocacy of legalistic aspects should be carried out in an appropriate politics or advocacy group.
Posts seeking or providing information intended to assist in copyright infringement (software piracy) are prohibited. Posters looking for these topics would be advised to look at alternative top-level hierarchies.
Posters are also requested to refrain from starting any console comparison, "system wars", or advocacy discussions (such as "Xbox sux!!!"). Such discussions are often designed to be inflammatory, and even when not designed to be, can be.
However, adverts of no more than four lines, which are part of the poster's regular signature, and which are not the main reason for the post, are allowed.
Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make your newsreader comply with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.
