COMMUNITY GUIDELINES 

-PRIVACY: Everything emailed by members of the Study Hall Listserv is said in confidence, not to be tweeted, forwarded, or otherwise put on record outside of the listserv’s bounds. We want this to be a safe space to criticize the media, speak our minds, etc. However, please feel free to share things from the weekly official Digest, as that is written more or less for public consumption (and helps us promote this listserv to more people).

-ZERO TOLERANCE: This is a community space. If you say anything racist, sexist, or otherwise inappropriate, you will be banned immediately.
