RULES OF THE GROUP
In the case of an 'open membership' Group like Liverpool Future, rules can only be for guidance. Although the Moderator has the power to ban members who do not conform, he does not intend to exercise that power except in extreme circumstances.
PURPOSE OF THE GROUP
The official description of Liverpool-Future, as displayed on the Yahoo Groups website and as supplied to all new members, is as follows:
"A discussion forum for Civic Trust society members and others interested in the future of Liverpool, the city's environment and architectural heritage. A means of exchanging news and views on local development proposals, planning policies and conservation campaigns."
We can do no better than repeat what is said on another (completely unrelated) Group's website:
"Treat others as you would like to be treated. It is very important that each subscriber does his/her part to contribute to a healthy, helpful atmosphere. We are here to share information and thoughts, and to discuss in a friendly manner."
Here are the Rules . . .
