Listserv Rules & Guidelines:

  • Include a signature tag on all messages. Include your name, affiliation, and e-mail address.
  • Keep it courteous. Don’t attack others. Let others have their say, just as you may.
  • Restrict messages to subjects related specifically for farmers markets.
  • Do not post commercial messages on the listserv. You may ask for recommendations on products and services.
  • All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are strictly prohibited. Do not post anything in a listserv message that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you.
  • Use caution when discussing products. Information posted on the lists is available for all to see, and comments are subject to libel, slander, and antitrust laws.
  • VAFMA and other e-mail list participants have the right to reproduce and quote postings to this listserv.
  • Do not post large attachments to the listserv group.
  • Send a message to the entire list only when it contains information from which everyone can benefit. The default for VAFMA’s list is to reply to sender, but ‘reply to all’ will go to the whole list. Please address your replies specifically to the original sender unless you feel your message is pertinent to the discussion and relevant to the group at large.
  • Send messages such as “thanks” or “me, too” to individuals– not to the entire list.
  • Do not send administrative messages, such as “remove me from list,” through the listserv.
  • When generating a reply to a personal response, do not forward the personal response to the list without first obtaining permission from the sender.
  • If you use automatic e-mail reply messages, please unsubscribe from the list while you are away and re-subscribe when you return.
  • VAFMA reserves the right to suspend or terminate membership on any list for subscribers who violate the listserv rules.
