This article is from the BiSexuality FAQ, by Jon Harley firstname.lastname@example.org with numerous contributions by others.
While by and large anything goes, any consideration of the "morality" (or
even, the existence) of bisexuality is specifically inappropriate, so please,
don't do it. That said, we all know that there are biphobic/homophobic bigots
out there, who will be here to preach unto us as only they can. For those of
you who would like a livable bi-space, please sit on your hands and don't
answer them. You'll only be encouraging their favorite form of mental
Advertisments for commercial services are also inappropriate and should not
be posted to soc.bi. In particular, advertisment of for-profit personals
services are unwelcome. So not only NO PERSONAL ADS, but NO ADS FOR PERSONALS
SERVICES. As with the rest of usenet, any endorsement of commerical services
(of any kind) are appropriate only if they are personal recommendations from
customers, not advertising by those who would profit. On soc.bi, we find it
especially annoying when people use us as a market without participating in
the bisexual community.
Sometimes new people post on a topic which is a FAQ, wildly off-topic or so
regularly raised as to induce boredom, and are then surprised that they don't
get any serious responses. The best advice for new readers is to refrain from
posting until they have read the newsgroup for a while to develop a feel for
what topics are appropriate.
