e-mail List for AIDS Activists

AIDSACT is an electronic mailing list for AIDS activists (established after the Vancouver AIDS Conference in 1996) providing a means of communication for AIDS activists who address AIDS as a POLITICAL crisis.

AIDSACT grew out of an earlier list, which ACT UP chapters and other organizations and activists used to plan actions at the Eleventh International Conference on AIDS in Vancouver.

Moderation Guidelines:

The AIDSACT mailing list provides a means of communication for AIDS activists who address AIDS as a political crisis. AIDSACT is not for the non-political discussion of science and medicine. Neither is it for the political discussion of non-AIDS issues.

Use the following guidelines to determine whether or not your message is suitable for redistribution to AIDSACT.

***DO NOT send messages containing personal attacks. If you want to criticize another list member, do it by private mail.

***DO NOT send messages that are irrelevant to the purpose of the list. The AIDSACT list exists for issues and information related to AIDS as a political crisis. It is not a forum for discussing treatments or the mechanics of harm reduction except to the extent that they have political implications.

***DO NOT send administrative messages to the list. You can handle most administrative issues automatically with listproc. The rare administrative problem that listproc cannot handle should be sent to listowner --never to the list.

***DO NOT send messages in any format other than seven-bit ASCII text. In general, avoid special characters of any kind, including true quotes, true apostrophes, characters with diacritical marks, and ligatures. Do not send messages with attached files or other enclosures. In addition, do not use "tabs."

***AVOID sending "unsigned" messages. Always include your real name and Internet mail address so that readers will know the authors of messages they are reading.

***AVOID sending overly long messages to the list. Such messages are difficult to read and cost many people money to download through slow modems. If you have a text that you think might interest list members, summarize its contents to the list with an offer to forward it to anyone who expresses interest by private Internet mail.

***AVOID sending messages of minimal significance, such as "I agree" or "Wow." If you want to send such replies about a message, send them to the author, not to the list.

***AVOID replying to a message with excessive quoting of that message. Quote only the particular section of the message to which you are replying. Summarize a message when you are replying to it in general. List members will likely have read it already and do not need to see it again.

***AVOID sending requests for additional information about a topic to the list. Send them to the author of the message unless you are sure the information will be of interest to other list members.

If you have technical questions, contact the listowner, aalstman@critpath.org
