"1 ) Only post messages with subject matter that relates directly to birds and birding in the Carolinas. Try to avoid discussing related subjects such as hunting, cats, politics, and general conservation issues. While these are important topics, there are many newsgroups and other forums where these can be discussed. Carolinabirds needs to maintain its focus for it to remain useful. For clarity, we suggest including the full English name of each species and avoiding the four-letter banding codes. Particularly rare species should be reported to the appropriate state Bird Records Committee.
8) In general, do not send advertising to the list. But, for example, if you've just written a book "Finding Birds in the NC Piedmont" or are running pelagic trips, you're welcome to make announcements." -- Dave Williams Goldsboro, NC
