I would assume that saying something about UUNet is bad netiquet as well as
maybe even 1 st ammendment protected speach that they disagree (or some loud
influential customer or politico] with. Sounds real not right

Because of recent improper use by users on AlterNet sites we are
sending out this reminder to all sites currently subscribing to news.
If you have not reviewed the accepted USENET netiquette with your users
recently we strongly suggest you take this opportunity to do so.

Before you or your users post to USENET, please take the time to learn
the rules of the environment which you are entering.  Doing so can make
the difference between creating a good name for you and your company on
the Internet or a bad one.

Please read the postings contained in news.announce.newusers to
familiarize yourself with the etiquette of USENET.  This information
may also be obtained via anonymous FTP at UUNET's archive (ftp.uu.net)
in the directory /usenet/news.answers/news-newusers-intro.Z  UUCP
customers may obtain the file via UUCP.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the users on your system are
also aware of the proper guidelines for posting to USENET.

Improper use of "netiquette", the guidelines of the USENET community,
will be viewed as a violation of the rules of a network.  This is in
violation of your contract with UUNET/AlterNet and will likely result
in your a loss of news posting privileges for your site.
