Subject: A conversation list for the village of West Norwich

Statement of Purpose

This email list was created to link up residents of West Norwich and the Beaver Meadow Road area with projects, concerns, and conversations specific to the village. Subscriptions are limited to residents of that area in order to protect this as a space for generative conversation. Matters of relevance or interest to a larger audience, all commercial posts, and all town government matters should be posted to the Upper Valley list or other town lists instead, as appropriate.

Posting Guidelines

Summary – Keep it Local, Keep it Civil

No anonymous posts – If your first and last name are not obvious from your email address, please sign your post.

If in doubt about whether a topic is appropriate for our list, consider this: If there are other online forums, such as town email lists, regional email lists, news groups or blogs more appropriate to your issue, please take the discussion there.

General Rules

This discussion list operates on the assumption that list postings will be civil and respectful to other list members. No abusive or threatening postings will be allowed. Anyone engaging in what the administration of Vital Communities considers to be abusive language or threats directed toward another list member may have posting privileges revoked.

In order to keep this discussion list useful and dynamic, there should be no verbatim forwarding of content that has already appeared elsewhere. If an article has appeared on the web that would be appropriate to reference in the context of a discussion on this list, please just include the address for the web page on which the article appears. It is inappropriate to post the content of any private correspondence to or from a list member without the express permission of all correspondents involved. It is illegal to forward any copyrighted material, which includes almost any print publication and many websites. Instead include a link or just a citation to the material in question.

Please note that it is the intent of this discussion list to keep it as a think space below the level of the town-wide conversation.

The administration of Vital Communities reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently exclude any list subscriber for any abuse or infringement of these list rules and guidelines. To contact Vital Communities with comments or to bring specific issues to their attention, write to .

A note on email attachments

The list rejects submissions with file attachments, including images and other documents. If your submission is rejected with this error but you have not attached anything to your message, the explanation is usually that your message contains something like a background pattern or a signature with some little graphic such as a Twitter, Facebook or corporate logo. If your message has any of these, the listserv will treat them as attachments. Please try sending your message without the pattern or the signature.

Vital Communities does not control and assumes no legal or editorial responsibility for any content distributed through the community discussion lists. Content is generated by individual subscribers, who each bear responsibility for their individual postings.

Volunteer individual discussion list administrators in each town are responsible for post-facto monitoring of the content of a town discussion list and may, at their own discretion, issue private warnings to individual subscribers or public guidelines to the entire discussion list if, in their sole judgment, any of the Posting Guidelines or General Rules are repeatedly violated.
