Charter of uk.rec.humour

(Not Moderated)

Uk.rec.humour is for the discussion of humour and humorous subjects of, in, by, about, with reference to, without prejudice or malice aforethought, money back if not completely satisfied, er, the UK or of interest to those in, on, around, up, left hand down a bit, wherever you are.

Look, if you need to have it explained to you, you are in the wrong group.

Bad Taste

There simply is no accounting for taste. However care should be taken not to post something which could not be broadcast late at night on Channel 4 (and if you can think of something Channel 4 would not broadcast you are sick, my friend, and this is not the group for you). This is an adult group. Well it's supposed to be. Unsubscribe if you are easily offended by sexual swearwords, innuendo etc., etc. Or just lighten up. It's just a joke, dammit!


Advertising is forbidden. Unless you really want the piss taken out of your product.

Binaries & Formatting

Encoded binaries (pictures, compressed files, etc.) are forbidden, besides being really naff. Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a pointer may be posted. Cardboard to make a pointer can be purchased at all good stationery stores.

Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where authentication is important and should be as short as possible. However, they really aren't very funny.

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>. But you won't will you? I bet you never RTFM either.


Anyone posting contrary to this charter may be reported to their "postmaster" and/or Service Provider, form master/mistress, club secretary and that nice old lady who runs the sweet shop at the corner of our street who always insists you say "please" and "thank you".
