Charter of uk.politics.rural

(Not Moderated)

Discussion is focused on issues relating to government policy that affects the social and economic well-being of rural society: these areas cover but are not exclusively limited to health, wealth and welfare, education, transport, employment and national trade policy.

The group is not for promoting local summer fetes! (Such postings should be directed to appropriate uk.local.* groups.)


Advertising is forbidden.


Excessive cross posting is inappropriate. Posters are requested to restrict their cross posting to no more than one other group in the uk.politics.* hierarchy, and no more than two other newsgroups. Such posting must be on-topic for those groups and is generally discouraged because of the likelihood of subject drift.

Binaries & Formatting

Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are forbidden. Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a pointer may be posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where authentication is important and should be as short as possible.

Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make some common newsreaders comply with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.


Anyone posting contrary to this charter may be reported to their "postmaster" and/or Service Provider.
