      Welcome to the CINNFP natural family planning mailing list. By joining this group, you implicitly agree to abide by the discussion rules described below.
      Please read them in full.

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      This document is adapted from the general rules for mailing lists originally published by the Catholic Information Network (CIN) at http://www.cin.org .

      CINNFP is a discussion group on the topic of Natural Family Planning. It is a group with a Catholic perspective, yet it is open to the general public.

      ---------------------
      NFP Discussion Rules:
      ---------------------

      This list is meant for the discussion of natural family planning (NFP). NFP is a set of methods incorporating awareness of fertility signals and the choice to periodically or occasionally abstain from sexual intercourse as a means of avoiding or achieving pregnancy.

      Obviously, discussion of all methods of natural family planning that are sanctioned by the Roman Catholic Church is on-topic. This includes theological, historical, and practical discussion. *Although pros and cons exist for every method, no "bashing" of licit methods of NFP is allowed.* Other methods of birth control may be discussed, but may not be promoted, on list. It is acknowledged that many subscribers may be users of the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) which combines fertility awareness with barrier methods, and they may seek practical help in fertility awareness here. Posting of entire charts is not only allowed, but encouraged. Also on-topic: marriage and sexuality from a Catholic perspective, especially as it relates to NFP; pregnancy, breastfeeding, and child-rearing, especially as it relates to lactational amenorrhea and natural family planning; and other topics at the moderators' discretion.

      There is a separate list available for members who wish to discuss off-topic matters, and which has fewer rules of discussion. This list, cinnfp-ot, is also hosted at yahoogroups.

      ----------------------
      Basic Discussion Rules
      ----------------------

      PLEASE NOTE that some of the rules below are unusual ones necessary to safeguard the Catholic identity of this list. Others are standard "netiquette."

      1. NO ADVERTISING! Advertisements for goods or services, free offers, or solicitations for funds (even for charitable causes) are not permitted on the lists. Some kinds of announcements are appropriate and may refer to a web page or email address for further information, but such announcements should not include prices. Other posts with the sole purpose of promoting some other web page, mail list, organization, etc. are not allowed. Advertising in a taglines added by your ISP is tolerated if it is not offensive.

      2. IMPORTANT PRIVACY INFORMATION: This mail list is public and archived. Everything you post to this group is available to Google. If you are concerned about your personal information being displayed to Google, do not include personal information in your e-mail messages. In particular, you may wish to set your e-mail program so that it does not display your full name in the headers or text of your message. Or you may find it more convenient to post with an anonymously-named yahoo account. Be aware that your disclosed personal information is also available to every subscriber and to every third party to whom any subscriber provides his or her Yahoo username and password.

      3. No flames. This means no disparagement of other listmembers or others, including individual priests, bishops, the Holy Father, and all other individuals, including public figures.

      4. No blasphemy. This means no disrespect for the religious beliefs of Catholics and those of other faith communities.

      5. No profanity, threats, or messages advocating violence or illegal activities permitted.

      6. Private email messages may not be reposted without permission from the author.

      7. Harassment of list members on or off list is not tolerated; contact the moderator *privately* to request action.

      8. Locutions, visionary messages, prophecy, interpretations of dreams are not permitted unless such have been approved by the seer's local bishop.

      7. All clergy or others using ecclesial titles are asked to identify their jurisdictions (denomination and location) to the list for the benefit of all subscribers.

      8. Promotion of heresy is not allowed. This does not mean that non-Catholics are not permitted to acknowledge, explain, or discuss their own beliefs; but it does mean that heresies are not permitted to be presented as if they are in accord with Catholic belief.

      9. Taglines may be four lines maximum in length. URL's are permitted providing the URL target does not denigrate the Catholic Church. Taglines added by your ISP are not counted in the four-line limit.

      10. No attachments allowed. Set your mail program to text only. No automatic reply or return-receipt requests permitted. No excessive quoting.

      11. Providing your yahoo username and password to a third party with intention to allow the third party to access your yahoo groups is prohibited and will upon discovery result in your being banned from the group.
