Before you subscribe, please read the following list rules. Scroll to the bottom to continue the subscription process.
MAILING LIST RULES
These rules only exist for the purpose of making the Shelby Dodge Mailing List a little more enjoyable for everyone. The bottom line is to use common sense and be considerate of other people. Some of these rules are a little subjective but keep in mind the administrator has the interests of the list in mind and is the final arbitrator of these rules.
All members will be responsible for knowing the rules of this mailing list. Please take the time to review these rules carefully.
Violators of the mailing list rules are NOT given warnings. Know the rules before you post.
If you are "suspended," your access to post will be taken away for the duration of the suspension. During this time you are welcome to continue to be a subscribed member.
By subscribing to the SDML you understand that all posts are released into the Public Domain. This means that anyone is free to use them without prior permission of the author. You also understand the SDML nor it's authors are responsible for the consequences of any advise given on this list. Some modifications make void any warranty that you have and all will be undertaken with due care. The person doing the modifications is solely responsible for any problems that may arise. If you have any issues with this, please contact the SDML Administrator at list-admin at sdml.org.
RULE #1: No flaming.
The SDML defines flaming as an e-mail intended to insult another list member. Calling another member names is a good way to call attention to your message as a flame. The SDML does not discourage arguing your opinion. Just leave out the name calling.
Racial slurs are considered flames and will receive the same discipline.
RULE #2: Anyone posting anti-Shelby Dodge messages will be banned.
This is a mailing list for Shelby Dodge enthusiasts. If you post a message to the list that clearly shows that you are not also a Shelby Dodge enthusiast, you will be unsubscribed and banned from the mailing list. The SDML will not host discussions on why you think Brand-X cars are better than Shelby Dodges or allow flaming of Shelby Dodge enthusiasts in general, you will just be removed. If you are removed over a misunderstanding, you will be given the opportunity to explain why you want to stay on the SDML.
RULE #3: Do not forward a private e-mail to the entire list.
There is nothing wrong with forwarding an e-mail to the mailing list if you believe that it will be informative to others. This rule is in place to discourage people from forwarding a private e-mail message from another list member to the entire mailing list in an attempt to discredit or draw public attention to it's author.
RULE #4: Do not send unsolicited junk mail to other members.
The SDML will not tolerate members who use the mailing list to collect e-mail addresses and then send them junk mail, chain letters, or any type of advertising.
RULE #5: Keep messages to mailing list on topic.
No matter what kind of vehicles you own, everyone is welcome to join the SDML. But since we are a group focused on Shelby Dodges, we require that all posts be limited to our definition of Shelby Dodge. Failure to keep mailing list posts focused on Shelby Dodge vehicles will result in suspensions for the authors. If your FWD Mopar doesn't fit into our definition of a Shelby Dodge, there are many other good mailing lists for discussion your vehicle. Please see the FWD Mopar Mailing List Links page at http://www.sdml.org/.
All mailing list messages main topic should be related to Shelby Dodges. The SDML defines Shelby Dodges as Dodge vehicles that were modified or inspired by Carroll Shelby. This includes any vehicle with the same 2.2 H.O. engine that was introduced in the 83 1/2 Shelby Charger, any vehicle with a 2.2 or 2.5 Chrysler Turbo engine, or any vehicle modified or built by Shelby Automobiles. NO V6 vehicles are included.
Specifically, this includes:
Any message to the mailing list that does not include as the central topic a Shelby Dodge as defined above will be considered off topic and the author will be suspended.
Other examples of off-topic messages include:
If want to post something to the SDML that you think will be of interest to the group, but is not clearly related to Shelby Dodges, you are encouraged to have the message approved. By having the message approved, you can be sure that a questionable e-mail will not result in a suspension. Please see Having Questionable Messages Pre-Approved for more information.
RULE #6: Do not send private replies to the mailing list.
This mailing list is not a chat room. When you are replying to a post, very carefully consider if your message should go to list or the author. If you are in doubt, send it to the author. Unless you feel that your personal response to someone will be of GREAT interest to the rest of the group, send it to the author. I recommend that when replying post that you verify the recipient first. It is easy to get wrapped up in writing a reply and forget to change who it goes to before sending it.
RULE #7: Trim your replies.
When replying to a post, please trim the original message AS MUCH AS YOU CAN WITHOUT MAKING IT CONFUSING AS TO THE ORIGINAL TOPIC THAT YOU ARE REPLYING TO. If you are replying to a reply, please trim away text from the original reply (i.e. don't leave 3 or more layers of replies in your e-mail).
RULE #8: Watch your subject lines.
Subject lines are very important. Especially to some members who have to sort out 200+ messages at a time. Always carefully choose a subject that describes the message that you are posting. If you are replying to a message, do not change the subject (exception, putting a RE: in front of it). If your response has nothing to do with the original message, then change the subject and tag the old subject line on the end (example, Brake Upgrades (was: Choosing the correct tire)). If you are replying to a reply, make sure that you are not putting another reply tag on the message. This way we do not get a thread that turns into "RE: Re: RE: SDAC-12 -Reply -Reply." If you are posting a message that mentions you are selling something or looking for something, please make it a separate message. If you are selling something, the subject should begin with FOR SALE: or FS: with a description of what you are selling after. If the item you are selling is posted at an auction, the subject should begin with FOR AUCTION: or FA:. If you are posting a message looking for something then the subject should begin with WANTED: or WTB:.
RULE #9: Do not send messages to the list that amount to clutter.
Do not send a message unless what you writing contains a well thought out question related to Shelby Dodge or comments that will be of value to other readers. Don't reply to a message just to say "ditto", "me too", or to correct someone's spelling. Remember, every message you send to the list also goes to over 1,800 Shelby Dodge enthusiasts.
RULE #10: Do not post indecent messages to the mailing list.
Do not post messages that contain excessively foul language or lewd terminology. Anyone who posts a message that is deemed to exceed a rating of "PG" will be suspended. It is our goal to maintain a family safe atmosphere.
