    Guidelines for Participation

    1. Discussion on Jobplace is polite and professional.
    2. Keep your messages short. State your opinion or question simply.
    3. Do not rely on your messages being confidential or private.
    4. While debate is welcome, personal attacks are not. You may not send harassing, libelous, defamatory, or obscene materials. Do not use ethnic slurs, racial epithets, or anything else that may be construed as disparagement or harassment of others. Curse words—or abbreviations of curse words—are prohibited.
    5. Please note: The first few messages you send to the Jobplace group will be held briefly in a queue so that NACE staff can monitor incoming and outgoing e-mail. This ensures that spam doesn't get sent to Jobplace listserv members.
