Short (less than 20 line) announcements of events relevant to readers are permitted; blatant off-topic or repetitive commercial advertising is not.
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 Newport to Nuneaton").
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 are not permitted on this group, however references to FTP-able material and Web URL's are welcomed.
