The WLUG mailing list is the discussion-list extension of the Waikato
Linux Users Group.
As such, we expect members of this list to adhere to the principals
espoused in our official Charter, in particular, Rule 6, which covers
the activities on this mailing list.
While this is an Acceptable Use Policy, the WLUG committee do recognise
the need for informal discussion among list members, and draconian
administration is not the goal of this policy. Please keep in mind,
however, that your comments to this list do represent the WLUG, and
while it is good to be seen as an organisation with a sense of humour,
some comments may do serious harm to our credibility as a serious
advocate of GNU/Linux and all things Free Software/Open Source related.
