Charter of uk.people.support.cfs-me

(Not Moderated)

This unmoderated group is for discussion of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), and for the mutual support of sufferers and their carers, in the U.K.

This allows for specific and general discussion of the illness, support services, treatment, and similar topics, together with personal concerns where these will interest other readers.

Announcements relevant to ME / CFS are permitted (e.g. forthcoming meetings, local support group details, charity contacts).

Commercial advertising is forbidden, but readers may post requests for commercial information to be sent to them via e-mail.

With the exception of PGP signatures, all encoded binaries (eg pictures, word processor files, .zip files etc), HTML, or similar non-plaintext postings are *forbidden*; such material should be placed on a web or FTP server and the URL posted.

Posters to the group are expected to be considerate of other readers. Personal abuse, flames, and posting of personal information without permission are forbidden.

Postings are welcome from people outside the U.K. provided they are relevant to U.K. readers.
