TMer's Code of Conduct

Updated: 2004-09-05

It is incumbant on every TMer to sign the TMer pledge before posting
to this Usenet Forum.

The TMer's Pledge

"I, <yourname>, am a trained TMer, and I promise to practice TM for
twenty minutes, regularly, twice a day morning andevening."

The TMer's Code of Conduct

1. You may not insult, flame, or otherwise abuse a TMer.

2. You may not bait, troll, or lurk on alt.m.t. with intent to trip.

Baiting is defined as posting with a clear intent to provoke anger.
Trolling is posting incendiary messages with intent to form hostility.
Lurking is behavior that results in trolling and baiting, then flaming.
Tripping is laying your trip out, instead of getting on the TMer trip.

Flaming is an attempt to cause a forum war or riot.

3. Avoid redundant posts and always insure data integrity.

Redundancy means do not post the same post over and over and over.
Data integrity means using a spell-checker and a dictionary and making
sure all hypertext links are current and valid.

4. You are not allowed to post the copyrighted work of others in order
to prove your point in a debate, unless it's a direct quote used with
parenthetical quotations marks and a works cited notation, with sole
intention to critique the authors writing style. Usenet does not
qualify as educational 'fair use'.

Don't plagiarize; it's illegal - use your own words or copy only 25%
of the reference, and then provide a hypertext link to it's target
location. Otherwise get the copyright holder's written permission.

TMers aren't supposed to steal.

5. Spamming

You may not spam a TMer.

Spam includes, but is not limited to, the following:

Excessive off-topic threads
Posting nonsensical messages
'Flooding' the forum with similar meaning messages
Post-count farming mail listservs
Blatant advertising and self-promotion
Messages without content or subject line
Using a persons name in the subject line
Posing as another using their handle

6. Privacy

You may not post any form of real life information of a TMer unless
they permit it by express consent. Examples of real life information
include name, address, IP addresses, and phone numbers, place of
employ, or Dome badge number.

You may not distribute email address, private/email Messages, and/or
Instant Messenger messages ("Chatlogs") with intent to harass or in
any way demean a TMer. You should not post any form of real life
information if you are 13 or under.

7. Miscellaneous

Do not post negative posts and discussions that are repeated over and
over and over with no other purpose than to disrupt TMer conversation
and discussion. If you feel the need to say something, say it once and
then move on or start your own thread. Avoid making every post begin
with RE: and end on one line.

Don't make up stuff.

You are not allowed to bash the Maharishi - if you do, you will be
asked to leave. All TMers already know that Mahesh Prasad Varma was
born on January 18, in the year 1917. Try to provide news that TMers
can use, not information about how you visited another saint, swami,
guru, or older woman named Ma.

If your message doesn't enable a subscriber to better understand the
mechanics of counciouness, then don't even bother to post it. Don't
be a quisling or a basher.

8. Do not disrupt multiple threads between TMers in order to get your
point across. This includes hijaking threads, re-naming them and thus
breaking the abiity to easily perform data searches by subject line.

9. You are not allowed to solicit sex with a minor TMer on this forum.
Avoid discussing anyone's private sex life, or lack thereof.

8. Stay on topic.

9. Please read the Maharishi's books, SBAL, CBG, BEFORE you make your
comments or post questions; Always check the alt.m.t FAQ; avoid
redundant queries; don't waste bandspace; it's easy to learn TM.

Dick'n Little, there is NO TM'ers code of conduct, period.

This is an unmoderated newsgroup. Go start your own damn fascist TMer's
forum where you can praise Bush before he rounds you all up for practicing a
"heathen religion."

This newsgroup has become a "cafe" for discussion among folks who have done
and may still be doing TM. Many groups, lists, and forums are uptight
about rules and there is often a need for a "cafe" to discuss off topic
subjects with folks that have something in common. This is what this group
has become and I see no problem with it.

There was no "pledge" to sign at TTC. Guess that says you were never at
one.

2x20 minutes a day is not enough for meditation. I therefore consider to
start a reform TM movement. A movemenet based on 3 hours of meditation every
day. If it is not possible for the meditator to meditate 3 hours a day you
may meditate on a photo of Maharishi or Are Holen of your own choice.

Why three?

This might be good advice for someone living on a desert island or on
a distant star with no inhabitants, but we live here on planet Earth,

minute.

That's not TM, whatever it is you're talking about.
