Hi everyone,

EDUCAUSE has received a number of complaints about an email sent to many different EDUCAUSE CG lists.  The post was a marketing message for a book on transnational higher education with the subject line "New Book on Higher Education Management".  EDUCAUSE has communicated the inappropriateness of the post to individual posting the messages

Although I do not believe the email was sent to this list, personally I received it 8 times, because of the number of CG lists I'm on. The message in question definitely violated the terms of use that EDUCAUSE has designed for the benefit of the lists and their members, which reads:

Promotional Messages and Advertising

EDUCAUSE Constituent and Discussion Groups are educational in nature and not intended for promotional announcements, advertising, product-related press releases, or other commercial use. Please note that unsolicited commercial communications to constituent group participants as a result of postings to a Constituent or Discussion list violate the promotional messages and advertising provisions of these guidelines and may result in the loss of access to the listserv in question.
Our experience has been that blatantly inappropriate intrusion on the lists is rare – but it does happen, as in the case mentioned above, and usually from someone outside our community.

All Participation Guidelines can be found at  http://www.educause.edu/discuss/constituent-and-discussion-group-participation-guidelines.

If you ever have a question about the appropriateness of something you are considering sending to this list, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me or Chris.

best,
aj

Colleagues

We've had a number of complaints filed recently over the posting of a marketing message for a book on transnational higher education on several of our constituent group discussion lists.  The subject line was "New Book on Higher Education Management"  As you know this goes against our policy which reads:
Promotional Messages and Advertising

EDUCAUSE Constituent and Discussion Groups are educational in nature and not intended for promotional announcements, advertising, product-related press releases, or other commercial use. Please note that unsolicited commercial communications to constituent group participants as a result of postings to a Constituent or Discussion list violate the promotional messages and advertising provisions of these guidelines and may result in the loss of access to the listserv in question.
Our experience has been that blatantly inappropriate intrusion on the lists is rare – but it does happen, as in the case mentioned above, and usually from someone outside our community.

We ask two things:

First,  please let your members know that we have communicated the inappropriateness of the post to individual posting the messages.

Second, please take this opportunity to remind the members of your CG of the Participation Guidelines which are located at  http://www.educause.edu/discuss/constituent-and-discussion-group-participation-guidelines.

Best regards,
Lida Larsen & Catherine Yang
EDUCAUSE

I guess I'll have to market elsewhere that blistering yet satirical exposé of software, vendors, and universities that I'm going to write some day...
