Charter of uk.local.essx

(Not Moderated)

This newsgroup is for the benefit of the county of Essex in England, its residents and those who are interested in Essex.

A forum for requesting and disseminating information and views about living in, visiting or being a descendant from Essex. Contributions are welcome from people who live, work or study in the county, or have an interest in the county.

The odd spelling of Essex is deliberate to prevent the sex spam picked up by the string "sex" in uk.local.essex.

Advertising

Advertising is forbidden, with these exceptions:
Suppliers of goods and services relevant to the county of Essex in the UK may post an invitation to visit their web site or request details. It should be of four lines or fewer and not posted more than once every 3 months. The subject line should begin "ADVERT: ", except for vacancy adverts, when it should begin "JOB: ".

Cross-posting

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 Glasgow to Maldon").

Note that the advertising of widely-available goods or services is *not* relevant in this context, and that most uk.local.* groups have restrictions on advertising, or prohibit it. Cross-posted adverts, where allowed, must meet the requirements of the charters of *all* groups involved.

Binaries & Formatting

Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are forbidden. Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a pointer may be posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where authentication is important and should be as short as possible.

Posts must be readable as plaintext. 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>.
