REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION
moderated group rec.photo.digital (moderates existing group)
This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to change
rec.photo.digital from an unmoderated group to a moderated group. This
is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural
details are below.
RPD is a high-traffic group with too many trolls. Too much profanity.
Too many for sale (FS) and for auction (FA) posts. Too many personal
attacks and flame wars. Too many off topic posts.
This group is for the discussion of all aspects of digital photography,
including digital cameras, scanners, image manipulation software,
printers, and CD-ROM technology.
All postings made to this group should conform to existing Usenet
guidelines (see news.announce.newusers for guideline documents). This
group explicitly prohibits the posting of commercial advertisments or
other promotional material, whether or not it is an any way related to
photography. Binary postings (i.e. non text postings) are prohibited.
This group is moderated.
The moderator reserves the right to cut off the discussion of a topic
when its "signal to noise ratio" has dropped too low and reject postings
on recently discussed topics.
Other rejection criteria:
For-sale notices (FS)
For-auction notices (FA)
Profanity of any kind
Binaries of any kind
Commercial links and spam
Off-topic posts not marked [OT]
Flame wars and personal attacks
Anything Lionel does not want
