The Mailing List: Who, What, Why, and How
The CCD CopyWrite mailing list has been deactivated. The archives from its short existence can still be found HERE
. There simply was not enough traffic specific to this license to warrant keeping a separate list active for it. If you wish to discuss the license, or copyfree
licensing in general, you should check out the copyfree discussion mailing list
instead. Any news and announcements relevant to the CCD CopyWrite license will be sent to that list for the foreseeable future.
Because that list is more generally for copyfree licensing in general than about the CCD CopyWrite license in particular, you will hopefully show courtesy to those who are interested in other topics than just this license. Please adhere to the following simple rules of etiquette when posting to the list:
- Never use HTML emails. HTML emails are used by spammers, may contain phishing code, and don't render well in the text-only mail user agents and email clients of some members.
- Don't be a problem child. Trolling and other childishness is unlikely to be tolerated.
- Don't top-post. As a mailing list with a relatively high percentage of members who have a technical background, the usual online mailing list etiquette rules apply, including the importance of trimming quoted text and avoiding top-posted replies.
- Stay on topic. While there is some room for tangents, you should attempt to keep discussion on the copyfree discussion mailing list on-topic at all times. That means that all discussion should relate in some way to copyfree licensing policy, copyfree licenses, advocacy, copyright politics, and so on.
- Do not group-reply. For the express purpose of ensuring that group replying is not necessary, this mailing list's "reply-to:" header is set so that replies to list communications go to the mailing list by default. You may also use "list-reply:" to reply to the list. If you wish to respond directly to the sender of an email sent through the list, you should either use the group reply functionality of your email client or mail user agent and edit out unwanted addresses, or find the sender's email address in your email headers and enter it in the appropriate place yourself when composing the email. The list's members realize that some people consider "reply-to:" munging "harmful", but for the most part at least they are not those people.
- Fix digest reply subject lines. Don't just send emails to the list with a digest email title, if you receive your list traffic in digest-mode. It helps others to figure out whether your comments are of interest to them if the subject line of your reply is relevant.
