3. List Etiquette.

This is an unmoderated mailing list serving primarily as a place where people can talk about Sarah Slean's music, her career and anything else loosely asociated with these ends. But other times it is not. As such, the amount of Sarah content may be exceeded by off-topic banter. [If off-topic discussions are not to your liking, you might give the Sarah Slean Announcements list a try, see section 5 below.]

Discussions may end up all over the map, so please try to help others filter such messages. A common way to do this is to add a label in front of your e-mail titles (such as OAC for 'Other Artist Content' or NSC for 'No Sarah Content'.) The atmosphere of any mailing list is dependent on the contributions of its members - don't be shy! This list aims to establish a sense of community between the people who appreciate Sarah's music, so join the family!

Also, remember that this is a public forum where each message is seen by *many* people. No topics are expressly banned from list conversation, but some topics often tend to incite a great deal of debate and emotion. Disagreement with others is fine, but flaming is *NOT* welcome. *PLEASE* _always_ consider how your post will be received before you send it. It is usually wisest to not rise to the occasion and flame someone in a public forum. Name calling and public embarrassment are *NOT* good form. If you must respond in such a tone, please consider e-mailing a person privately.

And if you quite obviously break common e-mail ettiquette, you will be sent an email reminding you of this section. Who knows, you might even be forced to watch Three Stooges films until you break down in tears. It will depend on the day.


Discussions of bootlegging: These are discouraged in order to honor the views of Sarah and her management. From her manager: "She's quite a perfectionist about her music and wants nothing more than to ensure that her vision of her work is what is passed on to the people who care enough to listen."

4. List Prohibitions

You may be unsubbed if your mail bounces repeatedly for more than 24 hours, or for repeated violations of the two rules listed below.

  • Absolutely *NO HTML* encoded mail.
