General Ground Rules on using the Microscopy Listserver and affliated Microscopy WWW Site(s)

Before continuing you should understand your responsibilities as a Microscopy.COM System user.

Specifically they are:

1.) Actively encourage and promote the free exchange and discussion of information, ideas and opinions, except when the content would compromise the national security of the United States (or any other country for that matter) ; violate proprietary rights, personal privacy, or applicable state/federal/local laws and regulations affecting telecommunications; or constitute a crime or libel to the ListServer, it's operator, users, any individual or organization.

2.)Use your REAL NAME and REAL EMmail Address and fully disclose any personal, financial, or commercial interest when evaluating any specific product or service, or contribution.

3.) Do not use this system for delivery of personal mail, advertising , UCE, spam, or messages or items of a similiar nature (i.e no posting of resume's etc....) If you are not sure then it probably does not belong here! If you would like an opinion then Email the message to me and I will review and comment as appropriate. (Zaluzec@microscopy.com). See the FAQ page for additional details.

4.) This forum is not to be used as a platform to accuse or defame any individual or organization in any negative manner. You may disagree with any comment posted and post a reply, but this server may not be used to spread misleading, derogatory or disparaging comments under any conditions.

5.) Adhere to these rules and notify the Zaluzec@Microscopy.Com immediately when you discover any violations.

6.) The use of this listserver is not a right, but a privilege. That privilege may be revoked at any time by the SysOp as his discretion. The name "Microscopy Listserver" may not be used for any commerical purposes without explicit permission in writing from the SysOp.
