    POINTS ECHO RULES AND POLICIES
    Revised Nov 30, 2018
    English is the official echo language. ========================================================================
    ALL USERS WHO HAVE ACCESS TO THIS ECHO MUST READ THIS. BY POSTING
    MESSAGES IN THE ECHO, YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT AND ABIDE BY THE RULES OF THIS CONFERENCE AS HERE POSTED.

    This conference may be made available to responsible users, point nodes,
    and full nodes (Boss nodes/SysOps). If traffic gets too heavy, it may
    at some future date be restricted to points and full nodes only. This
    is the POINTS echomail conference. This, along with many other echomail conferences is distributed worldwide. Please keep this in mind when
    entering messages. Keep your messages brief and to the point, and do not
    be excessive in QUOTING the contents of other messages.

    Description/Topicality...
    All messages posted here must consist SOLELY of helpful & informative
    material regarding POINTS and BOSSNODES. HELP for all topics concerning
    POINT operation, is appropriate here including the support for specific
    Point related software by their Authors. This is not a my point setup
    and/or product is better than your point setup and/or product echo. Be constructive and polite. Having said that, this echo has been a very professionally handled echo, and is generally frequented by a very
    respectable group. FidoNet is a police state so we must post rules, but
    the flavor of this echo is simply to be informative and have fun.
    Message handling and restrictions...

    1. Messages must remain on the topic of this conference as described
    above and in the current EchoList. Discussion of other topics is
    grounds for the offending person or node to be banned from this
    conference.
    2. Foul or obscene language, personal invectives, and "widget wars" will
    not be tolerated.
    3. Encrypted, encoded or rotated messages are forbidden.
    4. Keep the quoted portions of your messages SHORT. Excessive quoting
    adds to expense and overhead. Quote just enough to identify the
    thread of the conversation for other users. Use enough of the
    original material to be sure the thread IS identified.
    5. Reasonable announcements for NEW or REVISED Point or related software
    by Authors is ok, as long as it does not become too frequent.
    6. The use of "Visible ASCII Control Characters" ie: ASCII 31 and
    below or "High ASCII Characters" ie: ASCII 129 and above is
    prohibited in this echo except for language characters that are part of someone's name, etc.
    7. Messages must originate with a real name, no alias names please.
    8. Gating this Echo to the internet is forbidden without Moderator
    permission. Garbage mail coming back into the Echo from the internet
    via your gate will result in a prompt and permanent severing of your
    link.
    Moderator Policy/Continuity...
    1. All rules violations are to be addressed ONLY by the Moderator, or Co-Moderator.
    2. Questioning or discussion of Moderator policy in the open echo is
    off topic, except that the Moderator reserves the right to post
    special messages relating to such policy and rules from time to
    time for the edification of all participants. The Moderator will
    listen to and consider, any suggestion or criticism sent by
    private hub or host-routed NetMail. If there is a subject re
    Moderator policy that needs to be discussed it will be brought to
    the echo by the Moderator.
    3. The Moderator shall have the right:
    a. To appoint Co-Moderator(s) or Alternate Moderator(s)
    b. To set the rules for selection of his/her replacement at any
    time.
    c. The right to revise these rules at any time.
    4. In the event of the incapacity or unwillingness of the Moderator to continue to serve, then the Co-Moderator shall have all the rights
    ascribed to the moderator.

    posted no less than once per month, and nothing in these rules will
    supersede or replace any valid FidoNet rule or policy. ======================================================================== FidoNet International POINTS echomail conference

    POINT operation, is appropriate here including the support for specific
    Point related software by their Authors. This is not a my point setup
    and/or product is better than your point setup and/or product echo. Be constructive and polite. Having said that, this echo has been a very professionally handled echo, and is generally frequented by a very
    respectable group. FidoNet is a police state so we must post rules, but
    the flavor of this echo is simply to be informative and have fun.
    Message handling and restrictions...

    1. Messages must remain on the topic of this conference as described
    above and in the current EchoList. Discussion of other topics is
    grounds for the offending person or node to be banned from this
    conference.
    2. Foul or obscene language, personal invectives, and "widget wars" will
    not be tolerated.
    3. Encrypted or rotated messages and any portions thereof are forbidden. Specifically, messages or portions thereof that have been altered as to clear readability by methods such as ROT13 and any similar encrypting processes.
    4. Keep the quoted portions of your messages SHORT. Excessive quoting
    adds to expense and overhead. Quote just enough to identify the thread
    of the conversation for other users. Use enough of the original material
    to be sure the thread IS identified.
    5. Reasonable announcements for NEW or REVISED Point or related software
    by Authors is ok, as long as it does not become too frequent.
    6. The use of "Visible ASCII Control Characters" ie: ASCII 31 and
    below or "High ASCII Characters" ie: ASCII 129 and above is prohibited
    in this echo except for language characters that are part of someone's name, etc.
    7. Messages must originate with a real name, no alias names please.
    8. Gating this Echo to the internet is forbidden without Moderator
    permission. Garbage mail coming back into the Echo from the internet
    via your gate will result in a prompt and permanent severing of your
    link.
    Moderator Policy/Continuity...
    1. All rules violations are to be addressed ONLY by the Moderator, or Co-Moderator.
    2. Questioning or discussion of Moderator policy in the open echo is
    off topic, except that the Moderator reserves the right to post
    special messages relating to such policy and rules from time to
    time for the edification of all participants. The Moderator will
    listen to and consider, any suggestion or criticism sent by
    private hub or host-routed NetMail. If there is a subject re
    Moderator policy that needs to be discussed it will be brought to
    the echo by the Moderator.
    3. The Moderator shall have the right:
    a. To appoint Co-Moderator(s) or Alternate Moderator(s)
    b. To set the rules for selection of his/her replacement at any
    time.
    c. The right to revise these rules at any time.
    4. In the event of the incapacity or unwillingness of the Moderator to continue to serve, then the Co-Moderator shall have all the rights
    ascribed to the moderator.
    In compliance with FidoNet Echo Policy, the conference rules will be
    posted no less than once per month, and nothing in these rules will
    supersede or replace any valid FidoNet rule or policy. ======================================================================== FidoNet International POINTS echomail conference
