Uk.rec.humour is for the discussion of humour and humorous subjects
of, in, by, about, with reference to, without prejudice or malice
aforethought, money back if not completely satisfied, er, the UK or
of interest to those in, on, around, up, left hand down a bit,
wherever you are.
Look, if you need to have it explained to you, you are in the wrong
There simply is no accounting for taste. However care should be taken
not to post something which could not be broadcast late at night on
Channel 4 (and if you can think of something Channel 4 would not
broadcast you are sick, my friend, and this is not the group for you).
This is an adult group. Well it's supposed to be. Unsubscribe if you
are easily offended by sexual swearwords, innuendo etc., etc. Or just
lighten up. It's just a joke, dammit!
Advertising is forbidden. Unless you really want the piss taken out of
Binaries & Formatting
Encoded binaries (pictures, compressed files, etc.) are
forbidden, besides being really naff. Such material belongs on a web
or FTP site to which a pointer may be posted. Cardboard to make a
pointer can be purchased at all good stationery stores.
Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where authentication
is important and should be as short as possible. However, they really
aren't very funny.
Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly
formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make some common
newsreaders comply with this, read
<http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>. But you won't will you? I
bet you never RTFM either.
Anyone posting contrary to this charter may be reported to their
"postmaster" and/or Service Provider, form master/mistress, club
secretary and that nice old lady who runs the sweet shop at the corner
of our street who always insists you say "please" and "thank you".
uk.rec.humour Humour with a UK perspective.
