UBSCC Mailing List policy on Commercial Postings
need to reiterate that The UBSCC, the Mailing List, and the
Web site are unaffiliated with any commercial venture.
allow individuals and vendors to post information regarding
goods and services, within reason, on the mailing list. This
is, to us, similar to people posting parts and/or cars for sale.
SO. . .
.Here are the Rules - we will allow list members to post information
offering bona-fide club car-related equipment or services. We
welcome the vendor's contribution of technical advice. There's
a line between "yes, we have that part" and "Sale
Sale Sale". Also "Flaming" of one vendor to another
will not be tolerated. On the other hand, vendors need to be
aware that as an "independent" mailing list, from
time to time individual members may elect to comment on vendors'
service, both good and bad. We allow members to tell of specific,
factual experiences with vendors as long as the accounts are
well-written and reasonable. Sample OK - "It took three
weeks for Vendor X to ship my parts!" Sample NOT OK: "Vendor
Y is an evil company run by idiots." Compliments and "good
news" stories are also welcome.
make no attempt to balance the number of postings between sources,
the more the merrier. This will be tough enough to moderate
without starting to count postings.
who have not posted anything - please feel free to join in.
THAT BEING SAID - we do not expect this to turn into a "sale
of the week" posting site. That belongs on the vendors'
own web pages or other customer mailing lists that they may
care to start. Vendors will be subject to the same rejection
rules as anyone else regarding excessive string quoting and
other such infractions. We'll also frown on harvesting email
addresses from the archives, although that would be admittedly
hard to police.
comments welcome, and if it gets out of control we can change
The legal fine print.
