Lately there have been several messages posted and some rejected due
to content. I am posting the Guideline(s) of Calbirds as seen on the
web site. This is for everyone to read and understand. Ignorance of
the guidelines will not be tolerated any longer. These guidelines
were set up so that we can make this the best listserv on the net.
San Diego, CA
"CALBIRDS is for discussion of wild birds and birdwatching in
California only. Suggested topics are bird sightings,
identification, status and distribution, birding locations, and non-
commercial announcements from birding organizations. You may use the
Photos area to share photos temporarily to discuss identification,
and the Bookmarks, Calendar and Files sections to share information
with the group.
This list is designed to have a statewide scope. For lists which
operate on the county or regional level, please see Steve Holzman's
county list page.
A signature is required at the end of every message and must contain
your first and last names and your city.
All messages are required to have an appropriate subject in the
Subject field of the message. This allows for workable searching of
the archives in the future, and the ability to follow a thread.
Messages without a subject will be removed from the archives and
anyone posting such a message, including responses, will have their
posts moderated. This means that a listowner must approve each
message before it goes out to the group. Many email programs have a
feature that warns you if you are about to send a message with no
Subject. If yours has this feature, turn it on. Otherwise, type your
Subject before starting to type your message.
All messages and files posted to this list or its web site, whether
explicitly marked or not, should be considered to be copyrighted by
the author. While this material may be quoted on this list for
purposes of discussion, its use elsewhere requires prior written
permission of the original author.
Banned topics are pet birds, virus warnings, commercial
announcements or ads (other than California Pelagic Trips Birding
