Rydberg (info)

Viktor Rydbergs Teutonic Mythology discussion list.

This list is a subsidiary list to Asatru-L which being operated on and information on subscripton and technical information can be found at The list is unmoderated only in the sense that messages do not need to be approved to be sent to the list. Subscription to the list will be considered to be an agreement to abide by the rules and guidelines.

Courteous discussion is expected. Personal attacks, or "flaming" as it is known in e-mail lists, or baiting will not be tolerated. This includes remarks obviously intended to provoke a heated response as well as disparaging remarks, regardless of provocation. It should be remembered that Asatru-L is an international forum and that there are many people with diverse backgrounds and opinions. It is best to ask someone to clarify a position or statement before assuming that it is condemning or flaming. Agreement is not mandatory, nor even encouraged, but civil and resptectful discussion is.

Comments to other participants on the list should focus on the debate and presentation of ideas and facts, not personal remarks about individuals. This does not rule out a heated discussion. The moderator may step in to end a thread or to warn individuals. Individuals who have to be repeatedly warned may be unsubscribed from the list at the moderator's discretion.

The moderator has the responsibility of enforcing the rules and guidelines for the list fairly in order to maintain order and the decorum of the list, and retain the right to eject people from the list or change their posting priviledges at his/her discretion. No one will be deliberately unsubscribed without prior warnings although these warnings will generally be in private mail and not on the list.

We encourage a friendly and personal tone, but request that you move personal subjects to private mail out of consideration for others on the list.

If a discussion thread is blatantly off-topic and/or is using an unreasonable amount of bandwidth, participants may be asked to take it up in private or in a more suitable forum. If moderator requests to do so are ignored the participants may be suspended from the list.

Complaints about conduct of members of the list, topics, concerns or comments should be directed to the moderator (or moderators) preferably via private e-mail, not to the list at large. The moderator of the list is James Stonehouse

Posts will be considered to be the intellectual property of those who posted them but subject to the broadest application of fair use rulings. When in doubt, ask for permission to use anything posted to the list from the author anywhere but on the list. Messages can be crossposted to other lists unless there are objections from moderators or owners of those lists. It is suggested that permission to do so be asked of the author of the message, as well as the list owner/moderator. Since this list is a subsidiary list of Asatru-L messages should not be cross-posted to the Asatru-L list. A message may be sent to Asatru-L when a new subject that may be of broader interest is introduced, but individual messages may not be.

Relevant messages from other lists may be forwarded, assuming there are no objections from the authors of the messages. Asking permission is encouraged, and the participant who posts it recognizes that he or she will be held responsible if it does not conform with list guidelines.

Private, personal or confidential correspondence may only be posted with permission. Posts made on behalf of another person will be subject to the rules and guidelines of the list and the person posting the material will be held responsible for following list guidelines and rules. Please request permission of the author or publisher before posting copyrighted material, particularly that which has a notice specifically stating that reproduction in part or full can only be made with permission of the author/publisher prior to posting. For the purpose of this list it will be considered the equivalent of private or personal mail. If material is quoted from an outside source please make the appropriate attributions.

Attachments may be sent to the list.
