02 Electronic Newsgroups and Mailing Lists


Newsgroups
++++++++++

rec.sport.golf is a newsgroup which discusses ANY subject as it
pertains to golf. For those people interested in the rules of golf,
handicapping procedures, golf equipment, swing techniques, or you just
want some information on golf courses across the globe this is the
place you want to be.

NEWSGROUP ETIQUETTE
-------------------

Recently there has been a discussion regarding COMMERCIAL postings on
rec.sport.golf. A COMMERCIAL posting is one in which you attempt to
SELL or ADVERTISE a product.

The readers of rec.sport.golf have decided that they DO NOT want to see
such posts.

To aid the readers in stopping these advertisements, a directory on
dunkin.Princeton.EDU has been allocated for thise purpose. In this
directory, people/companies wishing to advertise their merchandise may
place an "ad". You may connect to the directory via the WWW at
http://dunkin.Princeton.EDU/.golf/misc/Ads, or via anonymous ftp.
