      List rules for The Enclave

      The following etiquette notice automatically mails to new members and
      to the
      list once a month as a gentle reminder to play nice.

      The Enclave is a nice and cozy group primarily for the discussion of
      Faith Hunter's books about Thorn St. Croix and friends. Faith is
      wandering around here, and pops up with comments and answers from
      time to time, too.
      Here are some list etiquette rules and suggestions:

      ---Let's try to keep it clean! Please, nothing over a PG-13 rating.

      ---Please avoid hot-button topics like politics. You think the prez
      is dumb or Obama is hot or similar topics -- keep it to yourselves,
      please.

      ---Faith knows her books are about religion, and this list is open to
      all kinds of discussion about religion. But onlist or offlist
      bashing, flaming, telling people that they are going to hell if they
      don't believe as you believe, is verboten.

      ---Try to stay on topic.

      ---Please, trim your posts. This means removing as much of previous
      replies,
      signatures, and yahoo generated ads as possible.

      ---Think about the volume of email flooding the boxes of others: try
      to avoid
      responses of "Me, too!" "LOL!" and "Oh! Yes!"

      ---Please do not spam the list. This includes forwards and chain
      mail. Bill
      Gates is never going to send you money. We're not interested in
      discount prescription drugs. And I'm sure that your baby will win the
      cutest baby contest without our help.

      ---Keep the subject line current to the topic. Change it when
      necessary.

      ---When a new book comes out, follow spoiler etiquette.

      ---Drooling over characters is certainly permitted. Put "HOT" in the
      subject
      line so the droolers can recognize each other :)

      ---When someone invokes the phrase "Let's kirk this," it means, let's
      agree to disagree, because this topic is driving me nuts.
      Drop the topic at that point. Period.

      ---The BIG RULE: Author bashing will NOT be tolerated. Mostly by the
      overprotective and loving fanbase. ;) Well thought out opinions and
      constructive criticisms are okay. Name calling is not. This extends
      not just
      to Faith Hunter and her bestest pal Kim Harrison, but other authors
      as well.

        Sounds good Faith. If the list starts to get bombarded with spam (it
        happened on the Hollows), I'll volunteer to help be spam police. I
        haven't been talking much but I've been around. Crazy stuff going on
        with starting school, moving to New Orleans soon, etc. Anyway, the
        list of rules sounds pretty complete.

                  I was a bbaaaddd reader yesterday and posted my NY resolutions and I apologize.  Blame it on the painkillers I take for my hands.   DeQuervains, Carpal Tunnel, Nerve Damage and Goddess and my Dr's know what else leaves me either snappy and cranky with pain or spacey on drugs.
                   
                  I am a tad A type and used to work at a fabric store at the same time as going to college, sewing my own wardrobe, writing papers and writing 40 pages of fiction a night.  Sort blew out my hands
                   
                  Mea culpa, no more political stuff from me
                   
                  But, since we have some lovely poetry, would anyone mind if I posted one of my story starts that's as poetic as I get?

                      One suggestion is maybe occasionally sending out the
                      list rules once a month or every 2 months to the list
                      automatically. A good way to make sure everyone is
                      reminded of it as well as a good way to put "updates".


                      Might mention a rule about attachments if it bothers
                      anybody who doesn't have room. I have my account set
                      to automatically block it, but sometimes they make it
                      through from mailing lists and take up a lot of space
                      and time if you are using a slower connection than
                      DSL. Maybe a suggestion to post pictures or other
                      attachments to the file section of the group?

                      Maybe a warning that this IS the internet and you
                      would probably do best to keep personal information
                      (addresses/work addresses private, phone
                      numbers)private.

                      I mention this because recently on 3 mailing lists i
                      am on have had an explosion of sharing addresses and
                      the like. You would be amazed at the lists i am on
                      that have people shooting out the home addresses and
                      phone numbers to a list that has over 400 members and
                      then being surprised when people they don't know call
                      or show up. I notice that Marjorie L. Liu uses that
                      rule and it works well. If people want to share
                      addresses they can go to private or commit themselves
                      to giving it out to the public then at least they were
                      warned and can't blame anyone for not warning them.
                      Not that i am implying the members are bad, just that
                      it is always good to play it safe especially dealing
                      with religion and anything else that is considered
                      "controversial". Had one paranormal group i was on
                      that had a flood of "fanatics" come on wanting to
                      "save us from the devil" of reading unexpectely. They
                      got banned quickly of course , but it
                      was....educational to see.

                      Also, you mentioned ads and spams, but how about
                      "jokes" fwding unless you want those (some are good
                      and some are bad...depends on ones humor :) )

                      Is there going to be a recommended book list file for
                      the database? I know I LOVE to recommend books to
                      fellow readers, but sometimes they get lost in the
                      messages so a place to keep a permanent list would be
                      great.

                      I know some seems common sense, but it never hurts to
                      state it in advance.

                        Chapter One
                        Sawdust & Moth Wings
                             The Inuit say that the Northern Lights, if you listen closely enough, whisper with the voices of the dead.  She wished she could hear those voices.  She spent too much time listening to the quiet murmurs of the ancient dead, too many hours holding conversations with their bones, too many eyes staring into their empty eyes.
                             Lena extinguished her reading lamp with a single, angry twist of her hand.  In the semi darkness, she untangled her legs and pulled herself off the blue velvet loveseat.  A place on sofa’s arm was worn shiny from the hours she spent lying, communing with the souls of dead poets and scholars. Lightning lit her face, as storm clouds fought each other in the sky.  The sharp planes of her cheekbones, for that half breath, bleached white and were made of pure marble.  The angles sharpened within the cracking light. She hadn’t been eating well or sleeping much.  Food held no appeal.  Sawdust and moth wings on her tongue. 
                             In the dark, when the nightmares crept in, she sought the safety of an old black and white world, a movie from the previous century.  Last night, she barely escaped sleep. Behind her eyes, she was on horseback, racing in a forest at the foot of a stony, bare mountain.  Something or someone was coming for her; she heard the crack and pop of broken branches and twigs as the pushed through the undergrowth.  They were only a few yards behind her, when she woke up.  She could feel the hot breath on her neck as she sat up in her safe, warm, dry, twenty first century bed.  Not a horse to be seen or branch to be broken.  When she broke free, hoping for Josh.  He wasn’t there.
                             He’d been late last night, and was late again tonight.  She would accuse him of another woman.  That would require a commitment, if not to her but then to the other woman.  Josh feared commitment the way wolves fear fired.
                        The hard shell she had carefully crafted around herself. was flaking away and wearing at the seams.  She tired of waking alone, shivering from one night mare or another.  She was tired of coming home to an empty, echoing house.  She needed more
                            At the window, she looked down, thirteen floors to the street, looking for Josh’s car or even him.  Just people with umbrellas and trench coats trying to run between the raindrops. 
                             There was a vote tomorrow.   Josh would be gone until his boss felt satisfied that he was on the winning side.  He might not be back before dawn. 
                             No need to wait for him, she decided as she shrugged out of her faded jeans and tee shirt.  She continued to strip, dropping her clothes on her way to the bathroom.  The last thing she removed was her watch.  Before she placed it in the basket on the shelf behind the toilet, she noted the time.  Quarter to midnight.  Another night short on sleep.  She decided against the comfort of a hot bath and settled on a short, simple shower.
                             The water kneaded the tension out of her shoulders, the soap washed the brine and dust from her body and the constant rhythm of the drops striking the tile calmed her. 
                        After drying and slipping in to a set of hospital scrubs she fell into bed.  The sheets were fresh.  Josh must have made it back this afternoon.  He was thoughtful, if usually absent.  She burrowed into the quilts, snuggeled her head into the down pillows and concentrated on her breathing.  When sleep pulled her down into it’s depth, she floated gratefully away.

                          That sounds like an awesome idea. I second it. And the list seems
                          rather complete to me, the few comments ive already read sound good
                          too. Especially the warning against revealing personal information.
                          Sometimes a friendly reminder is always helpful.

                                *dons ye olde tinfoil hat*

                                To recap Shar's post, treat everything you post online like you posted it on the board at the post
                                office next to the Most Wanted list, but will never get taken down. Because anyone who wants to
                                read it can, and you can't control who will read it (if you suspend reality and realize that the
                                internet is a lot bigger than your local post office.) The internet is data, data wants to be
                                copied, and you never know who will do the copying, or archiving.

                                *removes the hat*

                                Expect people you interact with to get under your skin. It happens to you daily at school, work,
                                and with family. Does this give you an excuse you to make an _ss of yourself? No, but it probably
                                will happen and happens to just about everyone. There will not be a perfect place where everyone
                                gets along happily, in real life or not. But trying to force your opinion on people online will
                                go as far as it does in real life, about earshot from you. Spend some time figuring out the
                                etiquette rules of where you are before you give people the chance to make a first opinion of you.

                                *jumps on ye olde soapebox*

                                As for jokes, personally I don't care because I have a warped sense of humor, and more
                                importantly, I am in charge of the email at work. That means people at work will still forward me
                                stuff that makes me laugh, but that I could quash instantly and get a big list of who is sending
                                what to whom if the company decided to crack down on humor. Just because you think something is
                                funny, does not mean everyone else will. If you have figured out the etiquette rules, you can
                                probably deduce what forwards are appropriate.

                                As a very personal rule to me, if you forward anything to me that even pretends to be fact, you
                                should be prepared for me to do some fact checking and if I come up with anything that disputes
                                your forward, I will send it to everyone you originally sent it to. One of the easiest places to
                                fact check your forward is http://www.snopes.com While the site isn't the last word on the
                                internet, searching through that site will show you how long some of the forwards you have
                                received have been circulating and save me the effort of a reply-all to everyone you sent the
                                message to quoting the article and shooting down your forward.

                                Do some searching on your own. Google has created a business from a box that holds text with a
                                "search" button somewhere in the vicinity. If you send out something asking about what the
                                weather is where you live, expect a smart-ass comment or 40 ranging from "where do you live" to
                                "open a window" with responses still coming weeks, months and occasionally years, down the road.

                                *hops off ye olde soapebox*

                                I think that'll do for now, and the common sense stuff probably does not need to be part of a
                                nanny post welcoming people to the board. This is Faith's list so she can make the rules she
                                wants to. While it is interesting she is looking for input as to behavior, it is still her list
                                and a disclaimer of *Retains the right to refuse service to anyone* will probably go farther than
                                a democratically approved list.

                                I think that's enough for tonight.

                                    Year resolutions or current things in your lives. I just took a day off
                                    and did a lot of tidying up. Rules was one things I wanted you guys to
                                    be part of. I am still open to suggestions.
