For starters, here is a quote:

"AVOIDING INAPPROPRIATE TOPICS

"The list is open to all, regardless of profession, place of residence,
gender, age, ethnicity, economic status, educational background, lifestyle,
religious beliefs... but it is not a forum for airing opinions about the
validity of any one particular belief system, lifestyle preference, etc.,
compared to another. Specific examples of inappropriate topics include:

"€ posts not related to birds, birding, and the natural world

[SNIP]

"Posts on such subjects all too often provoke unenlightened "debate" of a
purely adversarial nature, and sometimes degenerate into personal attacks
couched in terms and language offensive to the whole list. Therefore, these
topics lie outside the Tweeters charter and are strongly discouraged."

Good birding, everyone!
