Subject: 2) Charter (Original Text)

Author: Joel Furr


Discussion of the era 1939-1945 in particular, but ranging as far b=
ack
as 1918 and as far forward as the 1950's for discussion of eve=
nts
leading to the War and post-war events such as the occupation of Ja=
pan
and Germany. The discussion will be limited to social, politic=
al,
military, economic, technological, demographic, and historial aspects=
of
World War II, including discussion of:

* Arms limitations treaties in the 1920's, intended to head
off any future war
* the Weimar Republic
* the rise of the Italian Fascists
* the Japanese war with China
* the rise of the Nazi Party
* American isolationism
* Franco-British appeasement
* Italian misadventures in Africa
* German occupation of the Sudentenland and Austria
* the war proper, 1939-1945
* the Manhattan Project
* the Holocaust
* Post-war occupation of Japan and Germany
* Post-war governments of Europe
* and so on.


In other words, the mandate for soc.history.war.world-war-ii is inten=
ded
to be broad, rather than narrow, with moderation in place less to li=
mit
discussion than to keep out Gannon and the Holocaust Revisionists =
and
other malicious posters. Should Dan Gannon or Serdar Argic sub=
mit
articles which actually discuss World War Two rather than spread=
ing
their brand of conspiracy theory, their articles will be approved =
for
submission as well.

************************************************************************
************************************************************************
-------
Subject: 3) Moderation Policy


Soc.history.war.world-war-ii will have a very relaxed moderation poli=
cy.
The main purpose, as noted above, for moderation of this group is=
to
prevent it from turning into a revisionist flamefest akin =
to
misc.headlines or soc.history. As such, any message which actua=
lly
discusses World War II will be approved for posting, provided that=
it
does not attempt to claim that events such as the Holocaust ne=
ver
happened. There are other groups for discussion of that question, m=
ost
notably, alt.revisionism.

Moderation rules:

* Articles which discuss World War Two and its events will be appro=
ved
for posting.

* Articles arguing that the Holocaust never happened will not=
be
approved for posting.

* Articles must contain original thought. Lengthy quoting of sou=
rce
material with a couple of lines of comment at the end will =
not
be approved for posting.

* Blank messages, test messages, advertisements, MAKE.MONEY.FAST, and=
so
forth, will not be approved for posting.

* Articles which include excessive quoting (e.g. an article which quo=
tes
an entire other article in order to add a few comments at the e=
nd)
will be trimmed down by the moderator in question.

* An article MUST have a valid reply-to address or it will not=
be
approved for posting.

* Rejected articles will be shared with the other moderators for gr=
oup
consideration.

As noted below, the group will be group-moderated, to minimize de=
lay
between submission and posting and to keep the group running when =
the
traffic becomes heavy.

ADDENDUM: 'War Buddies' [June 94]

We've had a few of this type of message lately, and it seems to be a "gra=
y
area" in our charter. These messages don't _really_ discuss WW2, and the=
y
don't have any real historical content.

People who want to search for old war buddies should post to soc.veterans.

Subject: 4) Moderation Policies (Amendments 1994)

The moderators of soc.history.war.world-war-ii, in exercise of th=
eir
rights to clarify & amend moderation policies for the news gro=
up,
clarify & amend the moderation policies for
soc.history.war.world-war-ii.

These amendments are effective immediately. Any questions should=
be
addressed to: ww2...@acpub.duke.edu.

QUOTED TEXT:

Any article that contains more than fifty percent quoted material (=
and
the author's signature shall not count as original material for purpo=
ses
of determining the proportion) may be trimmed or rejected at =
the
discretion of the moderator. In exercising this discretion, t=
he
moderator shall take readability considerations into account, such=
as
the amount of quoted material at the beginning of the message, and =
the
size of the blocks of quoted material. An article in which the aut=
hor
has included a long article as a quote without making any effort to t=
rim
the quoted article may be rejected. A moderator may trim quoted mater=
ial
from any article at his discretion.

SIGNATURE LENGTH:

In keeping with Usenet netiquette conventions, signatures should =
be
restricted to four lines. Moderators may, at their discretion, t=
rim
.sigs to four lines before posting articles.

POSTINGS SEEKING 'WAR BUDDIES'

Soc.history.war.world-war-ii is a forum for discussion of WW2 even=
ts,
not to seek out war buddies. Soc.veterans is the most appropri=
ate
newsgroup to seek out individual veterans. Moderators may, at th=
eir
discretion, reject articles that seek out individual veterans =
and
suggest that they be redirected to soc.veterans. However, the moderat=
ors
also recognize that some requests in that vein can generate g=
ood
discussions of history or of resources for WW2 research. Therefo=
re,
moderators will evaluate such articles before rejecting them, =
and
moderators may post such articles if they decide that they have =
the
potential to generate WW2 discussion of general interest to the read=
ers
of the newsgroup.

Subject: 5) Moderation Policies (Amendments 1995)

-June 95-

REGARDING ANNOUNCEMENTS

Moderators may accept articles announcing the availability of n=
ew,
scholarly materials, if the moderators determine, in the exercise=
of
their discretion, that the announcement of such scholarly materi=
als
furthers the purposes of the newsgroup. The posting of any s=
uch
announcements by commercial enterprises does not mean that =
the
moderators will feel obliged to post all articles from commerc=
ial
sources.Moderators will evaluate all such announcements on an individ=
ual
basis.

SEEKING E-MAIL RESPONSES

Moderators may reject any article that specifies replies by e-mail on=
ly,
if the author does not offer to summarize the e-mail responses for =
the
entire group. Authors should, of course, follow up on offers =
to
summarize, or they risk losing their credibility among the moderat=
ors
and other newsgroup readers.

Subject: 7) Why this Forum Exits?

Author: Joel Furr


A war includes more than military events. A war includes soci=
al,
political, economic, military, and demographic events. Discussion o=
f a
war typically includes the *war era* and not just the war. Pres=
ent
groups which exist to discuss military issues are very specif=
ic:
sci.military, alt.folklore.military, alt.war. All of these tend to fo=
cus
very strongly on the military aspects and less on the historical =
and
other aspects. Soc.history.war.world-war-ii will encompass all aspe=
cts
of war.

Discussion of World War II and wars in general takes place on a w=
ide
range of newsgroups, many of which specialize on recent milit=
ary
history. The most notable example of war discussion taking pl=
ace
elsewhere is the World War II mailing list, which averages 800 kiloby=
tes
per month of traffic and which almost closed down after presenting =
far
too great a load on its moderators than they could handle. =
The
moderators of the list are in support of the proposed newsgroup as =
the
subject is far larger than can be easily dealt with in mailing l=
ist
form. A newsgroup is needed.

************************************************************************

Subject: 8) Where & How to submit articles ?

Subject: Battleship & Aircraft Carrier info on the WWW
Date: 16 Apr 1995 05:00:49 GMT
# Updated # 3/25/96

Announcing new Battleship and Aircraft Carrier information availa=
ble
on the World Wide Web (WWW):

I have (finally) completed a series of lists that provide informa=
tion
on all US and Canadian aircraft carriers, all Dreadnoughts (world=
wide)
and all US Pre-Dreadnought battleships. Except as noted, all the=
se
lists are my work, compiled from a variety of online and print
resources.

Comprehensive Lists:
-------------------
These provide "vital statistics" on each ship (dimensions, armame=
nt,
etc.) as well as dates laid down, launched, commissioned,
reclassified,
renamed, rebuilt, damaged, decommissioned, stricken, scrapped, et=
c.
This provides a brief history of each ship "in a nutshell". Many
books
have been written on these ships, I don't intend to duplicate tha=
t
work
by including every detail.

Aircraft Carrier Lists(http://www.wpi.edu/~elmer/navy/carriers.ht=
ml)

*Canadian Carriers (from mccl...@ug.cs.dal.ca}
*Pre WWII US CV series
*WWII era US CV series
*Post WWII US CV series
*US Escort Carriers
*US Helicopter/VSTOL Carriers

Battleship Lists (http://www.wpi.edu/~elmer/navy/battleships.html=

Subject: 14) Weekly Admin posting on the Newsgroup

TITLE: Please Read Before Posting To This Newsgroup!!
POSTED BY: mug...@alumni.caltech.edu (Asim Mughal)
LAST UPDATE: 16 Oct 97

# AUTO POSTING #


Welcome to the soc.history.war.world-war-ii Usenet newsgroup!! Everyone i=
s
welcome to participate in this newsgroup, but there are a few things that=
the
moderators of this newsgroup would like to point out to you before you be=
gin
posting articles.

1) This is a moderated newsgroup. That means that when you post a new art=
icle
or post a follow-up to an existing article, it is mailed to a moderator f=
or
approval before it is actually posted for reading in the newsgroup. This
moderation process can take as little as a couple of hours on up to 4-5 d=
ays
depending upon a number of different conditions. If your article is rejec=
ted
for one reason or another you will receive an email message back explaini=
ng
why the article is being rejected. In addition, most moderators will also
email you a message when your article is approved. If you post an article=
and
it has not shown up within 5-6 days, you should send the moderators a mes=
sage
at ww2...@acpub.duke.edu before reposting the article.

2) Articles can be rejected for a variety of reasons. The most common rea=
sons
are listed below.

a) Excessive quoting. Quoting occurs when you are writing a follow-u=
p
to an existing article and you include part of that article in your
follow-up. The quoted material typically appears at the beginning of
your follow-up and each line of quoted material is preceeded by a=20
quote marker (usually the > character). Simply put, the number of=20
lines of text that you type yourself in your follow-up should exceed
the number of lines of quoted text. The reason for this rule is two-
fold: first it is good Usenet netiquette and second the moderators
have to use a special Unix utility to post approved articles. In man=
y
cases this utility will not let us post articles when the=20
excessive quoting situation exists.

b) Email replies. The purpose of this newsgroup is to encourage the
discussion of the war within the newsgroup itself. If you wish to
specify that replies be emailed to you, you have to offer to summari=
ze
back to the newsgroup all replies that you receive.

c) Improper margins. This situation occurs when your article has mor=
e
than 80 columns on each line. A main cause of this is GUI based
newsreaders that post using a proportional spaced font that places m=
ore
than 80 columns on a line. This can also happen when you use Mime
encoding.

d) Off-topic postings. All articles should directly relate to World
War II.

e) Looking for war buddies. We do not accept articles of the =93I'm=20
looking for Joe Blow who served in the U.S. 4th Division during
1944=94 type. A more appropriate newsgroup for this type of article =
is
soc.veterans.

f) For sale items. We do not accept postings offering to either sale
or purchase personal items even when they relate to the war.=20

g) Question already answered. Sometimes the answer to a question is
so obvious that we receive many duplicate replies. When this happens=
,
after we've approved the first couple or so, we will reject the=20
remaining identical answers so as to save network bandwidth.=20

h) Articles that are mailed directly to a moderator. All articles mo=
st
be posted to the newsgroup itself or mailed to the article submissio=
n
address which is ww2...@acpub.duke.edu.

i) Articles with invalid mail addresses.

Due to the increased amount of e-mail spam, many users now include
some extra characters in their e-mail addresses in order to fool the
spam-bots. If you do this in the World War II newsgroup, the follow=
ing
conditions apply:
=20
=20
- You must include a note in your .sig stating that you have done s=
o,
along with your correct e-mail address.=20

- Your 'fake' e-mail address must include your real address in some
altered format. For instance: ww2...@acpub.duke.edu_spamkiller i=
s
alright, while m...@foo.bar is not.

- Your e-mail address in the From: line must be easily recognizable=
, and
not require the .sig for reconstruction.
wswp2a...@akciplulbe.drukkei.eldlue is not acceptable.
=20
- Additionally, you may not use the address of another, real
service provider when altering your From: line. If your
address is us...@foo.bar, you may not alter it to say us...@aol.com.

You must also understand that without a correct e-mail address in t=
he
From: line, you will probably not receive notification that your po=
sts
have been rejected/accepted. So if you choose to use one of these
spam-defeaters, your posts might be almost untraceable by the
moderators.

3) There are two mailing lists associated with soc.history.war.world-war-=
ii.
When you post an article it is actually mailed to the ww2...@acpub.duke.=
edu
mailing list. This mailing list then in-turn mails the article to one of =
the
moderators. If you are having trouble posting articles within your
newsreader, you can always mail them to this submission address for appro=
val.
The other mailing list is the moderators mailing list at
ww2...@acpub.duke.edu. All questions about the newsgroup moderation proc=
ess
and rejection appeals should be mailed to this second mailing list.=20

4) There are currently three active moderators for this newsgroup. Their =
names
and email addresses are listed below.

Richard Miller ri...@bcm.tmc.edu
Andrew McMichael amcm...@osf1.gmu.edu
Stephen Graham gra...@ee.washington.edu

5) If you have any questions, please let us know at ww2...@acpub.duke.ed=
