TO:  FRIENDS in SAYMA
FROM: SAYMA Ad Hoc Committee on Electronic  Communications, Bill Reynolds, 
Clerk
SUBJECT:  A proposal to break  SAYMA's current single listserv into three 
separate listserv's
DATE:  06/06/2006
 
The following is part one of the latest, well-seasoned proposal for SAYMA  to 
have three separate listservs.  This proposal is set to be  brought  before 
the Yearly Meeting this week. Part 1 here only because I think sending  all 
three parts is too long to be allowed on the listserv.  Parts 2 and 3  to follow.

1.  SAYMA DISCUSSION  LISTSERV
 
GUIDELINES FOR CONTENT:
This list is for the SAYMA community to discuss  general issues of concern to 
Quakers. (For further information about Friends'  concerns see Quaker.org).  
This list is especially for those who like  electronic back and forth 
discussion about views, opinions, etc.  Please  compose your postings to this list to 
reflect the fundamental Quaker value that  "there is that of God in Everyone". 
When responding to another post, respond to  that of God in the author or 
subject of that post. This means express your  perspective sincerely without 
passing judgement on the other's motives,  character, intelligence or integrity. 
Sometimes it is good to allow time to pass  for seasoning your thoughts before 
posting a response.
 
ELDERING GUIDELINES:
Form a group of four or five "elders" from those  who read the list regularly 
and appear to have skills in discernment.  Ask  them to "step in" if a/some 
subscriber(s) post inappropriate material or  excessive numbers of posts.  
 
When someone posted something with inappropriate content or tone, elder(s)  
are advised to email directly to the person who sent the message and suggest in 
 their future postings they use more tender language.  Elders may, from time  
to time, feel a sense that a remnder for what and how we speak on this 
listserv  needs to be sent to the whole listserv, either near the time when an 
offense has  occurred or later.  Elders are advised to be mindful that some issues 
will  be resolved without their intervention.  This is a good thing.  If  
listserv participants make a mistake occasionally, it does not necessarily have  
to be pointed out to them. If an individual repeatedly violates the listserv  
guidelines despite repeated eldering, the listserv elders should consult with  
each other and reach unity before asking the listserv administrator to remove  
him/her from the list.

"ONE LINER" TO APPEAR AT THE BOTTOM OF  EVERY POST TO THIS LIST:  
"This list is for the SAYMA community to  discuss issues of concern to 
Quakers. (For further information about Friends'  concerns see Quaker.org)" 
 
WELCOME NOTICE TO EVERYONE WHEN THEY JOIN THIS LIST: 
This list is  especially for those who like electronic back and forth 
discussion about views,  opinions, etc.  Please compose your postings to this list to 
reflect the  fundamental Quaker value that "there is that of God in 
Everyone." When  responding to another post, respond to that of God in the author or 
subject of  that post. This means express your perspective sincerely without
