Group Description

[Last updated on: Sun Mar 15 17:28:40 1998]
Welcome to Christlib, the email list for the discussion of topics that, in
some way, are both Christian and libertarian.

I have found some Christian libertarian friends on this list; you might
find friends, also.

*** Manners ***
Both libertarians and Christians are welcome and especially Christian
libertarians are welcome.

The list was created by Bruce Baugh, who managed it for over three years.
Bruce likened it to his living room and he expected his guests to treat
each other politely.

I intend to carry on that tradition. Each subscriber is here as my guest
and I desire each one to feel comfortable on this list. I encourage
subscribers to debate ideas as appropriate, but to never attack another
subscriber. And please avoid language and crude topics that other
subscribers might find offensive. I (Dar Scott )
will normally send a gentle warning at first but may have to boot repeat
offenders. (Should _I_ ever be rude to a subscriber, please wake me up
by sending me a note.)

Here are some ideas to consider when framing mail, especially mail on
sensitive subjects. Take care to criticize ideas, not the person you are
debating with. Keep a thick skin, even when some ideas seem to hit home.
Avoid making pot-shots. Avoid introducing sensitive subjects when a
sensitive debate is already in progress. Review the applicability of the
subject line when discussing sensitive subjects; some people might want to
avoid them. Show leadership in how you compose mail during sensitive
debates. If someone has to bow out of a debate, remember this person may
have had to leave before completely communicating his ideas. Be patient
with those who take the time to advise a newbie or an old friend in list
manners. Sometimes a topic has been beaten into the ground and should get
a rest. Be patient with the list manager; God is still working on him.
