Subject: capdist.* Newsgroups and Posting Guidelines

NOTE: Binary files (whether programs, bitmaps or others) are  not
      to be posted to any of the groups listed below.

In general, the Capital District newsgroups are for  postings  of
general  interest  to Capital District residents (but not others)
or postings that are about events and activities in  the  Capital

These are the current Capital District newsgroups:

capdist.announce        Announcements and news of and  about  the
                        Capital District.  If this  newsgroup  is
                        abused by excessive  off-topic  postings,
                        it   should  probably  be  changed  to  a
                        moderated newsgroup.

capdist.seminars        This newsgroup is presumably for seminars
                        that are given in the  Capital  District.
                        Such  postings  should  probably  be   to

capdist.admin           Discussions about the capdist  newsgroups

capdist.misc            All other discussions that don't fit into
                        any  of  the  other   capdist   newsgroup
                        categories, but are somehow  specific  to
                        the Capital District.


alt.culture.ny-upstate  Discussions of and about the area  in  NY
                        State that is north of NYC and  south  of
                        the Canadian border.

ny.*                    Newsgroups with discussions of and  about
                        NY State.

nyc.*                   Newsgroups with discussions of and  about
                        NY City.

    Please try to post to the appropriate newsgroup, and  try  to
    avoid  crossposting  whenever  possible.   This   makes    it
    easier  for everyone to find the information they are looking
    for without wading through irrelevant articles.

    If you have questions about these guidelines,  you  can  send
    E-mail to Daniel A. Norton .
