uk.local.dorset is a local interest newsgroup intended for discussions of a
general nature about Dorset. Subjects may include sport, history, culture,
towns, education, local club scenes and local media topics, plus anything
else of interest regarding Dorset. Although the newsgroup will mainly be of
interest to people living in Dorset, queries regarding the county and its
culture are welcomed. Posts from ex-patriate Dorset people, whether
overseas or in other parts of the UK, are encouraged.
All adverts are forbidden. Short (i.e. under ten lines) announcements
for local events may be posted provided they are non-commercial,
relevant to the area covered by this group, and that they are not
posted more frequently than once per month. Such announcements should
have a subject line with the prefix "
Readers are reminded of the existence of uk.local.southwest.adverts,
where relevant local adverts may still be posted.
Messages posted to this newsgroup must not be cross-posted to more than
a TOTAL of four uk.local.* newsgroups; these may be geographically
adjacent or overlapping, or connected by the subject of the post (e.g.
"moving house from Exeter to Bournemouth").

short as possible.
Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly
