1.1 The newsgroup
The newsgroup is the newsgroup for discussion about
Ariana Clarice Richards. This is the only subject allowed.
The newsgroup is a moderated newsgroup. Its 2 (two)
moderators are Wim Godden and Gregory Jackson. The 2 (two) moderators
maintain the newsgroup and its contents. Any violations on the rules of the
newsgroup, as described in this FAQ, may result in actions from either one of
Wim Godden is the creator of the newsgroup and has
recently changed the newsgroup from a retro-moderated to a moderated status,
meaning all messages posted to the newsgroup are checked to see whether they
comply with the newsgroup rules before they are posted.

1.2 Discussion Content
What to post :
* New threads for discussion
* Text Articles, eg. Interviews.
* Information about new movies, reviews, or release dates.
* Upcoming Appearances/Interviews
* New WWW and FTP sites, but posted with the permission of the
* Suggestions/Corections/Additions to this FAQ
* Pictures/movies/audio of Ariana Richards or Bethany Richards (ask
  permission for large files please, as posting large files to the newsgroup
  is not encouraged. It might be easier to place it on one of the Ariana
  Richards Fan Pages. has a few Mbytes of space left for
  such files. Contact for more information.).

What NOT to post :
* Threads should not be sexist !
* Threads should not be about nudity !
* There is a lot of worry nowadays about the safety of celebrities. Posts
  suggesting stalking, or even requests current location are discouraged.
* Privacy is also a concern, requests for e-mail addresses, location of
  schools or universities, or home addresses should not be requested or
  posted. All stars have an agent, please mail them through that address.
* This is NOT alt.FLAME.arianarichards. Posts aimed at degrading Ariana
  Richards should not be made here (or anywhere else !).
* Advertisements of ANY KIND !

These rules exist to make sure the newsgroup isn't filled with junkmail or
messages that are ethically not allowed to be posted. The moderators decide
what's ethically correct and what's not. If you want to post something and
you're not sure whether your post will be allowed, send the message to the
moderators first. Don't post it unless you have permission !

This is in no way an attempt to stop freedom of speech. The only reason for such
system is to avoid messages being posted that don't belong in the newsgroup or
that are considered indecent by the majority of newsgroup readers.
