BSTTW E-List Email Ground Rules

Welcome to the Burn Survivors Throughout The World, Inc. (BSTTW) E-Lists. BSTTW offers several different E-Lists. The BSTTW E-List is not moderated. The BSTTW Auctions E-List, BSTTW News Update E-List, the BSTTW Volunteer E-List, the BSTTW Viet Nam E-List are moderated. Below are the BSTTW E-List Email Ground Rules. These ground rules relate to every BSTTW E-List and all BSTTW E-List Members.

BSTTW E-List Ground Rules

         - NOT All BSTTW E-Lists are moderated. If you are member of one of the non-moderated BSTTW E-Lists you
will be able to send emails without the emails being moderated. If you break any of the rules of the BSTTW E-Lists and you are not removed immediately you will be moderated. If several people break the rules of the BSTTW E-List within a 30 day period all current and future members of that BSTTW E-List will be moderated for a 3 month period before the BSTTW E-List Moderators will decide if the emails may be sent without being moderated.
         - If you do not respect the rules of the BSTTW E-Lists you will either be removed from all of the BSTTW E-Lists or moderated. If you have been doing this for an extended period of time the member will be removed and not allowed to rejoin any of the BSTTW E-Lists.
        - All of the BSTTW E-Lists are available in order to offer burn survivors, family members, caregivers, nurses, doctors and firefighters the friendship and support required to move forward after being involved in a burn injury.
        - All Emails that are posted all of the BSTTW E-Lists are private. Do not forward any of these private emails to another E-List, individual, company or anyone else outside of the BSTTW E-List.
