Email List Rules

Thank you for participating in the APA Division 54 email list. Rules for the email list were created to insure the list remains a viable resource for all subscribers and participants.

  1. Do not use the forum for illegal purposes, including but not limited to defamation, violation of intellectual property laws, violation of antitrust or unfair competition laws or violation of criminal laws.

  2. Do not intentionally interfere with or disrupt other forum members, network services, or network equipment. This includes distribution of unsolicited advertisement or chain letters, propagation of computer worms and viruses, and use of the network to make unauthorized entry to any other machine accessible via the Forum.

  3. Do not use the Forum for commercial purposes. “Commercial” as used for purposes of evaluating email list messages means communications whose primary purpose is to advance the business or financial interests of any person or entity, or otherwise to promote a financial transaction for the benefit of the author directly or indirectly. Examples of prohibited communications include advertisements for products or services, notices regarding rental of office space, or direct solicitations of email list members to purchase products or services. Examples of messages that may be of financial benefit to email list members but are not prohibited because they do not inure to the financial benefit of the author include news of job listings or position openings, or discussion of professionally related products or services where the email list member conveying the information is not in the business of selling the products or services. Announcements that provide useful professional information to list members but may also have some incidental commercial benefit to the sender (e.g., an author who is a listmember merely advising the list of publication of a professional book) typically would not be “commercial” for purposes of this restriction.

  4. Do not use this forum for any communication that could be construed in any way as support for or opposition to any candidate for a federal, state or local public office. The Federal law providing for the American Psychological Association’s tax exempt status absolutely forbids the use of APA resources or facilities, including this forum, in any way that would even appear to support or oppose such a political candidate.

  5. Maintain client confidentiality when discussing clinical issues.

  6. The list may not be used for electioneering (e.g., campaigning, solicitation of support) 

If you break these rules then you will be unsubscribed.
