Screen-L's messages are all filtered (lightly!) by a moderator who
checks to make sure they're appropriate for us before posting them to
the list. Our general policy is that less is better when it comes to
moderating, however, and thus we occasionally err on the side of
leniency and let through material that is borderline.
This is by way of explanation for a few borderline posts that have
appeared over the past couple of weeks. We're training a new moderator,
Amy Chu, and she's still getting a feel for what is and is not
acceptable for Screen-L.
Amy is a graduate student here at the University of Alabama in the
Telecommunication and Film Department, which sponsors Screen-L. Our
other moderator currently is Hong-Sik Yu--also from UA's TCF Dept.
Additionally, on the Screen-L "staff" is Don Larsson, who has been doing
a terrific job weeding out the dead addresses and generally keeping
Screen-L lean and mean.
Finally, I am Screen-L's "owner" (in the jargon of LISTSERV, the
software that runs Screen-L)--the person who started the list in 1991
and oversees its operation.
Please let me know if you have any comments or queries about Screen-L.
