NEWSGROUPS LINE:
For your newsgroups file:
sci.physics.acoustics	Topics in acoustics and vibrations.

RATIONALE:

The group alt.sci.physics.acoustics in the same topic space was 
started in 1995 and has been a successful group with productive 
discussion since, but has not had the more broadly accepted Big 8 
newsgroup posture.

FEEDBACK:

The following comments favored the formation of 
sci.physics.acoustics:

CHARTER:

This news group is intended for serious discussion on all technical 
fields of acoustics and vibration as indicated by the Acoustical 
Society of America. See page B1 in the 2006 (Green) ASA membership 
directory. These are:

Architectural Acoustics
Engineering Acoustics
Musical Acoustics
Noise Acoustics
Physical Acoustics-
Animal Bioacoustics (now includes Acoustical Oceanography)
Psychological & Physiological Acoustics
Structural and Vibrations Acoustics
Speech Communications Acoustics
Underwater & Propagation Acoustics
Biomedical Ultrasound Acoustics
Bioresponse to Vibration Acoustics
Signal Processing in Acoustics

1. Consider this news group to be where Hello's are exchanged 
followed by knowledgeable discussions on acoustics and vibration 
question that may evolve. However, detailed repartee on elementary 
hobbies such as loudspeaker design and amplified audio problems 
should be discussed elsewhere on hobby groups, etc.

2. Our discussions should be concise, involving relatively short 
messages; a few screen-loads usually suffice.

3. Avoid public debate that switches to smaller and smaller matters. 
Private E-Mail is for that. Rather, stick to main issues from which 
all of us will learn and also enjoy the benefits of this public 
medium.

4. Resist the temptation to author large treatises here. Save that 
energy for a separate E-mail file targeted to a recipient, or the 
telephone

5. When including a copy of the message to which you respond, DELETE 
all extraneous, non-germane lines. Leave only pertinent succinct 
lines that will precede your learned response.

6. AVOID quarrelsome and profane language that ultimately detract 
from the credibility of the arguments and the validity of the 
information presented.

7. AVOID ad hominem and defamatory comments.

8. Brief "Jobs Available" or "Help Needed" postings are welcome 
during economic malaise.

In these ways, we will all welcome and enjoy each other's thoughts.


POLICY IN LIEU OF MODERATION:

The group will be unmoderated.  Messages which are off topic, 
profane, spam, inflammatory, personal attacks, unduly argumentative, 
or excessive "Jobs available" announcements are discouraged.
