    CHARTER:

    comp.sys.laptops.thinkpad is for discussions pertaining to ThinkPad (IBM
    and Lenovo) laptop computers. It is NOT an official support forum for
    IBM or Lenovo.

    General Usenet "netiquette" guidelines as posted in
    news.announce.newusers and news.answers shall apply to this newsgroup.
    In particular, participants are asked to show courtesy and respect for
    other participants, and to avoid the use of offensive language,
    excessive quoting, or long signature blocks. Participants are encouraged
    to use descriptive Subjects (e.g., "T41 won't boot after disk swap"
    rather than just "Help").

    The following types of posts are prohibited:

    * Off-topic (not directly related to ThinkPad laptop computers)
    * Binaries (except for appended text-encoded digital signatures)
    * Spam (including excessive cross-posting)
    * Make-money-fast or other chain or fraudulent schemes
    * Work-at-home or other scams
    * Commercial advertisements, "infomercials," or announcements
    * Auction notices (e.g., eBay)
    * Forged articles (anonymous articles are allowed)
    * Personal insults or repetitive flaming (attacks)
    * Employment (help and/or position wanted) notices

    The use of e-mail addresses from articles posted to this group for the
    purpose of sending junk (mass unsolicited) e-mail or for compiling a
    list so that others may do so is specifically prohibited.

    In the absence of moderation, prohibitions can, of course, only be
    enforced by the collective will of the group and/or by after-the-fact
    complaints to the offender's service provider. Nevertheless, it is hoped
    that this charter will help in getting complaints resolved.
