Summary: Moderation of uk.religion.christian PASSES 80:11
It is our wish to maintain as free a forum as possible for the expression of
ideas within the terms of our existing charter.
Since we are only reluctantly adopting a moderation policy, this proposal is
for a minimum-level approach, whereby approval will be automatically granted
to known participants and only subject to specific prior approval by the
moderator or exclusion from the newsgroup under exceptional circumstances.
Cross-posting will, however, be strictly limited.
For full details of this policy refer to the amended charter, which is
The moderation policy may change with experiece.
This newsgroup is intended for discussion of Christianity in the UK,
Christianity from the persepctive of UK posters, and general discussion
amongst UK Christians.
UK Christians and non-Christians are welcome to post on any
appropriate discussion topic. Non UK posters are welcome to
post on matters of specific UK relevance, or contribute to
existing discussions. Non-UK posters are strongly advised to
consider whether another group would be more appropriate before
starting a new thread.
English. Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic words should be given with
an English translation.
The following are considered to be on-topic:
+ Discussions regarding Christianity from a UK perspective, and
the UK from a Christian perspective.
+ General discussion amongst UK Christians and between UK
Christians and non-Christians.
+ Announcements of specific interest to UK Christians.
The following are considered to be off-topic:
- Discussions which could be better conducted in an
international newsgroup (e.g. soc.religion.christian).
- Advertising which is not specifically relevant to UK
- Posts on matters specific to other countries.
- Binaries and posts not in plain English.
- Personal abuse/flames.
It is NOT intended that the moderator should censor postings, the
objective is to keep discussions broadly within the defined topic of
'Christianity from a UK perspective'. In time it is envisaged that
many of the functions described below will be performed automatically.
Posts from new subscribers will be accepted provided that they
broadly comply with the terms of this charter. Posts from known
subscribers will always be accepted for posting, except under the
circumstances specified below:
a) Articles cross-posted to more than two other newsgroups and all
binary files will normally be rejected.
b) Postings from a person who has seriously or consistently violated
the group's charter may, for a fixed period, be made subject to
prior approval by the moderator.
In such a case, the moderator must immediately send the offender
a notice outlining the reason for this action and its duration.
A person disciplined in this manner has the right to demand that
the moderator posts a copy of this notice to the newsgroup for
comment by other subscribers.
c) In the following cases only, the moderator may impose a total ban
of unspecified duration:
i) following persistent violations even after the implementation
of (b) above,
ii) in the event of serious abuse directed against the moderator,
iii) if a poster forges newsgroup headers or gives a fake id.
In all cases except (iii) the moderator must send a notice
outlining the reason for this action to the offender, and to the
newsgroup for comment by other subscribers.
Short announcements of specific interest to UK Christians ONLY.
Articles cross-posted to more than 2 other newsgroups will normally
