What are the guidelines for sending and receiving emails?

The Guidelines (click the button on the left hand side menu) remind us of how Forum members should relate to each other. - 'our aim is to communicate on the internet clearly and concisely but without causing offence'.

Particular emphasis is given to offers of 'look-up' services, ownership of information and confidentiality - particularly where living individuals are concerned - and what is the best practice when sending and receiving emails. These recommendations are presented as Guidelines rather than 'rules' because offensive emails are almost unknown in our Forum community.

Nevertheless, the Moderators have the right to remove offending messages or members who persistently ignore the spirit of the Forum.
