List Etiquette (AUP)
Cybertelecom-l was initiated in 1997 and has over a decade of civil and insightful discourse. We are proud of the depth, substance and respectfulness of our dialogue. We work hard to ensure that it remains that way.
- Cybertelecom-l is a private list belonging to Cybertelecom.
- Participants are requested to observe proper netiquette. Flame wars and personal attacks are not tolerated. If you have been removed from other discussion groups, your request to subscribe may be denied.
- Please do not post third party content except as a part of fair use discussion (ie, quoting from a recent article about a recent court case, and discussing its implications is good; merely reposting articles from online newsources without discussion is not acceptable. Participants are encouraged to forward the headline and link to the moderator for inclusion in the Cybertelecom News).
- You do not win arguments by volume. Please do not repeat your arguments over and over. Subscribers who post excessively may have their subscriptions changed to "moderated."
- Access to the e-mail addresses of subscribers is limited to the owner and the moderator of the Listserver. This list is not available to anyone else and may not be used for any other purposes.
- No archive of this list is authorized; no public archive is permitted.
- Please no attachments.
- Brief announcements of conference, papers, or events of interest are encouraged, otherwise distribution of commercial messages on this list is prohibited.
- You may not harvest the email addresses from Cybertelecom-l in order to send those addresses SPAM (did I really have to say that?).

- Authors of email postings hold copyrights in their postings pursuant to US copyright law. Unauthorized use of their postings may constitute copyright infringement and could constitute criminal acts.
- Pursuant to 47 U.S.C. § 230(c), moderator, Cybertelecom nor anyone else is not responsible for third party content.
