} Is there something like an acceptable usage document that users must
} agree to upon registration of an account on ftoomsh? Is there something
} in it that covers this sort of thing? To those who know, please excuse
} the possible lameness of this query, I just thought I'd better ask :-)
There is an acceptable use policy, yes. By accepting an account on
ftoomsh, users implicitly agree to abide by the Acceptable Use Policy
(AUP); however, it might be that either the message isn't getting
through clearly enough, or that it's just being ignored because people
think that they can get away with anything on this machine.
I assert: it is a violation of the acceptable use policy to tamper with
files in anyone elses account, regardless of whether or not the file
permissions permit you to do so, unless you have been expressly invited
to modify that file.
General Note: As a result of the Emergency Meeting on Tuesday (8/11),
we've now got a forum for complaints of this nature. If you've got *any*
complaint about the way you've been treated on ftoomsh (or, in future,
any other possible progsoc systems), you can send mail to
email@example.com (the Justice League of Progsoc <ta-daaaah>).
In order to get the JLP up an running, the following persons were
elected to start the process:
Cameron Hutchinson <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Colin Panisset <Colin.Panisset@nospam.nms.otc.com.au>
Jeremy Rashbrooke <email@example.com.EDU.AU>
Ryan Shelswell <firstname.lastname@example.org.EDU.AU>
Mail to the jlp list will reach these four people. It may also be read
by certain members of the executive, but if you want to make private
representation, here's my PGP key; you can mail me directly.

Alister, if your .signature disappeared from your ftoomsh account and
you want to make a complaint about it (and you're really really certain
that you didn't just delete it by mistake), then you now have a means to
We've also decided that there should be penalties for making false
representations to the JLP -- so don't just go around blindly accusing
people if you don't have hard evidence. It might backfire on you.
