GNHLUG operates several e-mail mailing lists for discussion and dissemination purposes. See MailingLists for the list of lists.

In general, spam (messages that are from people not subscribed to the list, and that has nothing to do with the topic of the list) is dropped without a return notice. (Providing a reason seems to incite more spam - frequently from different spammers).

Use of the mailing lists is covered under the Terms of Service in the LegalNotice for this system.

Changed:

Messages coming from subscribers and that's not linux related is politely rejected with a reason (off-topic, off-color, or not germaine to the list).
>
>
Messages from addresses not subscribed to the list are silently dropped by the mail system (this is due to the weight of spam on today's Internet).

Changed:

If the message has anything to do with Linux or the purpose of the list is generally accepted.

Most of the lists are not moderated; any subscriber can post. The exception would be the AnnounceList. Most subscribers are flagged for moderation, so if they attempt to post, their mail is held until a list admin can release it.

Note that moderators should reject only non-linux related posts, and illegal activities.

Each list's info web page (provided by GNU Mailman) details the topic/charter of the list. Abuse is dealt with manually, and generally after-the-fact.

There is on-going discussion about how we should best address the question of "topic" and "acceptable messages" to the gnhlug-discuss list.
