Posting Guidelines:

  • CPSR-GLOBAL is a MODERATED list. That means any posts which are not "on topic" or inflammatory will be filtered out.
  • The list is in English, because it's the lingua franca of the Net.
  • Signatures will be four lines only, in consideration of users with poor connections.
  • You can tell cpsr-global messages because of the [@] in the subject line.
  • Long posts are shortened
  • KISS--Keep it short, sort of (-:

    • Remember: people on small, slow machines have a lot of trouble keeping up with the CPSR-GLOBAL traffic. These folks are often the ones in the less-developed part of the world, or who are stuck with slow modems and financial constraints. Long posts might bog them down and make them leave the group--something we definitely don't want. KISS, please...

Questions and commenents can be sent to the list owner and moderator, Marsha Woodbury, Ph.D. (, Former Chair of CPSR with a strong interest in international cooperation.
