cal-forum -- Greens Cal forum


About cal-forum
English (USA)

This online conference is for news, analysis and discussion of Green organizing (both electoral and movement) in California.

Please speak on the forum as you would in a formal meeting of your Green organization. Address the group (not some individual), discuss ideas and events (not personalities and suspected motives), and don't waste your fellow Greens' time and patience with invective and repetition. Don't say anything you wouldn't want the press to see. Don't use insulting language or call people names. (If you must disparage someone, do it in private email to that person.) Be very careful with humor: there's no body language in email and it's too easy to misinterpret humor.

Messages to this forum should be sent no place else. That is, do not send a message to this forum with other addresses in its To:, Cc: or Bcc: lines. This prohibition will be enforced by software in the future: your message will not be posted. This rule is necessary to prevent runaway "flame war" conversations with other groups and nonsubscribers.

Specific rejection policy as of 2-11-2006:

1) Message file size may not exceed 80KB.

2) No more than 2 recipients allowed in the "To" and "CC" header lines.

Admin's policy change 5-6-2007: In order to view the archives you must use your subscribed email address and password OR you may use the email address and the usual shared GPCA password.
