Group Email Guidelines

To keep the discussions helpful, well organized, and constructive, please follow these guidelines when posting:

  • Try to keep the length of posts brief and the tone positive.
  • Keep the focus on how music can inspire and energize the movement for progressive change. Posts concerning events in the news and political analysis should include a clear explanation of how it relates to the use of music in responding to those events.
  • If you disagree with something said in a post, consider responding to the individual off list (the email addresses of those posting are included in the post. Just hit reply, delete the group email address and paste in the individual’s address). If you think the whole group could benefit from a debate on an issue, please express your point of view while adhering to point #1 above. It is imperative to refrain from personal attacks while debating issues of substance.
  • If you have something to say that is not directly related to an existing thread, create a new post rather than changing the focus of the existing thread.

The moderators of this list will enforce these guidelines by sending warnings to individuals when guidelines have not been followed. Moderators reserve the right to rescind posting privileges for people who violate the guidelines.
