LIST CHARTER ON CONFIDENTIALITY
The Alliance Discussion List(hereafter the list), in order to operate effectively, requires that contributors to the list have confidence that what they say on the list will not be repeated in public fora. The list is a useful place for floating ideas that are yet very tentative, or for frank discussion between party members which we would not necessarily wish to see aired in public. To this end, the list has no public archive. This also requires
Forwarding messages from the list to non-list members is therefore prohibited unless two conditions have been satisfied:
An accidental and innocuous violation of this charter will result in a warning the first time it occurs, and removal from the list for a second violation. A deliberate violation and/or one which could cause damage to the Alliance Party will result in immediate removal from the list.
This charter does not cover such ‘chain e-mail’ jokes as might be posted to the list.
