AM: Ad-market discussion group guidelines
The ad-market group provides a forum to address Internet
advertising & marketing opportunities and issues. Another
objective of our group is to disseminate relevant information.
As our group grows in size and posting volume, I want to refresh
all of us on discussion group guidelines. Group guidelines or
"rules of the road" listed below help facilitate useful discussion
& make certain value is being delivered to all of us. Should you
have questions or comments on the guidelines below, *please
email me privately* at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
* Please stay on topic when posting. Our discussion group is used
for addressing Internet advertising & marketing opportunities and
issues. Relevant information is also disseminated through our
group. Comments concerning topics other then Internet advertising
& marketing, while interesting, belong someplace else.
If you are unsure whether your comment belongs here or not, ask
me! Remember, we also have the *Marketing Musings* newsletter-
perhaps an appropriate pipeline for your information. If our group
is not the appropriate place, I will help you find another discussion
group or pipeline for your opinions or comments. Do your own
*value check* before posting or entering a current discussion.
Noise, an issue for all discussion groups, is even more important
for time strapped netpreneurs.
* If you want to respond to an individual and don't feel your
comments are relevant to the group, respond privately to that
individual's email address, not the list address.
* Do not post unsolicited advertising, promotional materials or
other forms of solicitation to the group. This is in direct violation
of our access agreement (http://netpreneur.org/aup.html).
Remember that you will gain exposure for yourself or business
by offering relevant *information* that helps others on the list.
* Be careful what you disclose! Our group is open & unmoderated,
meaning that messages you post go directly to the list or group.
As our group grows in size, we are attracting a variety of
participants. Make sure that you are not posting proprietary or
