- Rennlist is a list server
and web site with the primary intent of providing
a reliable mailing list and list
archive search service to Porsche and BMW owners and enthusiasts
worldwide. The Rennlist lists are intended to
provide a forum for discussions about these cars and other
- The mailing lists will be
professionally administered at all times.
- List and web site hardware
and software will reside at a
professionally-managed site, with a high-speed
Internet connection, daily backups, and
- Rennlist mailing lists
and Forums will at all times be open to free discussion about Porsche and
assuming the discussion is related to the
particular list's topic and is not intentionally inflammatory, fraudulent,
libelous, sexual, defamatory, racist, sexually defamatory, or
demeaning. At no time will the list administrator(s) attempt to set editorial policy, except as
noted above or in Section (5).
- The list administrator(s)
reserve the right to unsubscribe and ban members
who act in an intentionally inflammatory, fraudulent, libelous,
defamatory, racist or demeaning manner,
or in a manner inconsistent with this charter, using any
Rennlist system or message communication technology. Further, no
private communications can be posted publicly, without the
permission of the party that send you that private e-mail/message,
as these are typically used to incite Flame wars. It is not our intent to stifle
communications, but to insure that free and open
communications can take place.
- In keeping with Copyright
law, Rennlist considers that the content of
messages posted to any of the lists will remain
the copyrighted material of its author, as the
"original author", unless
the author specifically assigns copyright
otherwise. Rennlist is considered a "forwarder"
or "publisher", and the combined "list/site
messages" to be considered as "archives", protected
under Rennlist Copyright. Posts containing material which is
protected under copyright, which a person does not have express
permission to use, resell, distribute or otherwise make available
are grounds for immediate termination of that user.
- Rennlist will accept occasional commercial postings (not more than
twice per month) to the general Rennlist e-mail discussion lists providing
that they are short (25 lines or less).
The Rennlist Forums will not accept any commercial postings
without a Rennlist Sponsorship and/or Membership or prior consent of the Rennlist Administrator(s),
and as a Member/Sponsor, limited to two Rennlist Forum
threads per month. 'Commercial' postings are defined as those made
by vendors with the intent to promote or sell goods or services.
If you post as a commercial vendor/business more then twice per month,
you will be contacted off the list by the Administrator and could
be asked to take a three week "vacation" from Rennlist - should you object,
the Administrator will be more then willing to help you "go on vacation" for that time
- You may not have commercial links in your signature to non-supporting vendor sites (i.e. - "Rennlist Sponsor") nor act in behalf of a commercial vendor, who is not a Sponsor, by having your SIG include a website from a vendor who is *not* a Rennlist Sponsor. We have a lot of Vendors who "use Rennlist" as their *free advertising*
- You may not post links to Rennlist 'deals' and/or "group buys" offered by non-supporting
Commercial Vendors or non-Members targeted at Rennlist subscribers. More times then not, folks are asked to do that for the "free advertising" that the Vendor enjoys
- and the site Administrator has no way of contacting either party
should something not be fulfilled.
Also - This includes links to your e-Bay Auctions! DO NOT
POST THEM as "Hey - check these out - I just saw these!".
- If you have been banned by Rennlist and attempt to register again using some means to get around the ban, such as using another email address, you agree to a $5,000 dollar reinstatement fee. You also agree that any disputes will be resolved in New Hampshire courts.
- If you receive products for free or at a special discount from a vendor you must disclose that information when you make posts regarding that product. Any other type of vested interest that could cause you to potentially have a biased opinion must be disclosed.
- Rennlist will also accept
non-commercial "for sale" or
"wanted" postings to all Rennlist E-mail lists
providing that these postings are not too
repetitive. "Repetitive" means posting items for sale more than twice a week or
more than four times in one month. These
"for sale" or "wanted" posts
should be limited to 40 lines or less. On the Rennlist Forums
- similar postings will only be permitted if the author is a paid
Rennlist Member in good standing. Others will be deleted without
- At no time, will
participation as a Rennlist member be disclosed publicly or
privately by Rennlist. This includes third party inquiries
as to whether you are a Rennlist Member and/or your Membership
- Our mailing list will at all
times remain private. Your name and email address
will never be given out or sold to any
organization. Further, Rennlist has a strict
- While we intend to provide a
forum for open communication between list
members, we will accept no responsibility for
business transactions performed with the aid of
these lists, forum(s), and/or website(s).
- While paid Membership is
not required to access/post to Rennlist, site users do not have
implied permission therefore, to "launch" their website within any
Rennlist public area(s), nor patronize their website within Rennlist
and its users for any reason whatsoever. If you would like to
use Rennlist to publicize your website, please have written approval
first from the site administrator - it's common courtesy. How
would you feel if Rennlist SPAMMED your site users/visitors? In the meantime, if you
make such a post - it will be deleted and may result in your being
banned from this site.
- Rennlist is expected to be
a dynamic site, responding to its
member's wishes and other opportunities. As a
result, the administrator(s) will have
authority to make changes in the administration, charter or policies of
Rennlist, without prior notice or approval from the site users.
- The Rennlist mailing lists
have no affiliation with any other
Porsche-related organization, including but not
limited to Porsche AG, BMW AG, AUDI, PCNA, PCA, or any Marque-related publications.
Rennlist takes e-mail very
seriously. Lost mail, or mail that doesn't make it to the
list server is a serious technical matter. Therefore,
in-coming and out-going mail goes through two internal
mail systems - one backing up the other. If, at any time,
you believe our servers have lost a post, please go
immediately to the web site and send a message to the Listmaster/webmaster.
Considering the real-time nature of this Mail List Server, it is impossible for Rennlist to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that Rennlist does not actively monitor (24 hours per day/seven days per week) the contents of and are not responsible for any messages posted.
We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Rennlist.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use these Forums to post any material which is knowingly false, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law.
Soliciting other list subscribers to participate or join in any legal
proceeding - threatened, pending, or on-going is cause for that user to
be banned without further recourse. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you.
Rennlist does not and cannot review each and every message that is posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages. Further, we reserve the right to delete any message for any reason whatsoever.
