Hi One of the issues that has been discussed is the issue of *moderated* and *unmoderated* maillists. Businesses have setup unmoderated maillists to let their customers discuss anything they want to. I saw a msg from one of them which I thought was very interesting and progressive. I am posting it for general info. Mind you Pentax Corporation owns the list and has let the maillist run on its own without any interference at all. May be other organizations may learn from the experience of Pentax and other businesses. ............MKRamadoss ----------------------------------------------------------------- >Date: Mon, 11 Aug 1997 10:37:01 -0700 >From: Rob Kurtz <email@example.com> >Subject: A Message From PENTAX Marketing Dear Pentax-Discuss Group: Pentax is making this rare appearance to let you know that we do check in from time to time and monitor the Pentax-Discuss Group...most recently the string of messages regarding "Pentax and this list." When we created the Pentax-Discuss Group it was decided that an unmoderated group would be the best way to go. And, we wish it to remain just that...a place for Pentax users and enthusiasts to freely share their experiences and discuss all aspects of Pentax as well as the photographic industry (both good and bad) without interference. In addition, the free flow of information being directed by you, the group users, gives Pentax the opportunity to quietly sit by and listen to what you have to say without intruding and biasing opinions. We should mention though, any information gleaned from our observations is, of course, shared with the appropriate departments/individuals in the company. There is also a legal aspect that colored our decision. At the bottom of each message, there is a notation that states that this "is an unmoderated mailing list and the opinions expressed are not necessarily those of Pentax Corporation". In effect, Pentax cannot be held legally liable for any comments made. We realize that from time to time you may have questions that require a response from Pentax. Please send these inquiries to PentaxInfo@Pentax.com. We will respond to your inquiries promptly. We would like to also say how pleased we are to see the Pentax-Discuss Group flourish and grow. It's wonderful to see how committed to Pentax many of you are and the extent of your knowledge. Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm. Sincerely, PENTAX Corporation ..
