(Moderated) CHARTER ------- The misc.activism.militia newsgroup will be open to discussion on all aspects of organized and unorganized civilian firearms ownership for the purposes of ensuring domestic tranquility and the protection of the civil rights of all people. This includes information on training, organization, gunsmithing, purchasing and selling weapons and ammunition and any other issues relevant to militias. Also included are any community-oriented volunteer policing activities. This newsgroup is not for discussion of the politics of gun ownership and use in general; any such posts should be directed to talk.politics.guns. All discussions on recreational uses of firearms, and firearms in general, belong in rec.guns. It is acceptable to discuss any and all issues related directly to militias, including the ethics of militia activities. Messages containing encrypted material may not be posted on misc.activism.militia. Private email or a mailing list should be used for this purpose. Messages carrying out transactions or other material that may be in violation of any law should never be sent on USENET, as this brings risk of prosecution and harassment to all the organizations responsible for its distribution. This includes, but is not limited to, illegal firearms or ammunition transactions, threats of death or bodily harm, murder contracts, plots to overthrow legitimate governments, and restricted distribution information or data which you do not have permission to distribute. If it is your intent to do any of the above, misc.activism.militia is an inappropriate forum. MODERATION INFO --------------- Misc.activism.militia will be a moderated newsgroup for the purpose of preventing cross-posting (excluding the two exceptions below). The automated moderator, firstname.lastname@example.org, will reject any cross-posted material (notifying the sender of the rejection) but will not otherwise generally restrict the content of posts (except as described below). Messages crossposted to news.answers and misc.answers will be allowed, but the moderator may, at his discretion, block responses to crossposted messages. David Hollingsworth, the operator of the robot moderator, can be reached at email@example.com and shall further be considered the moderator of misc.activism.militia. The automated moderator will enforce the content guidelines mentioned in the Charter, if necessary. No person shall be banished for off-topic discussion (i.e. harassment or anti-militia sentiments) without a public discussion period of one week followed by a two-week vote requiring a majority to succeed. No banishment shall be for longer than a period of 90 days, during which time the individual may post one public request every 30 days for his readmission. Aside from banishment, a public vote can be used to impose message length or number restrictions on troublesome individuals. The moderator may refuse to act on any vote passing with less than a three-quarters majority. Further, votes from people who have not posted to misc.activism.militia within the previous 90 days shall be declared void. Copies must be kept of all votes received, regardless of validity. No vote is required to enforce the restrictions on encrypted messages or illegal content. Modifications to the rules of moderation under this charter will require a three-week discussion period followed by a three-week vote. The vote must succeed with a two-thirds majority to be binding. Any votes from people who have not posted to misc.activism.militia within the past 90 days shall be declared void.
