Calls for Participation on this list

Dear all,

As you may recall, I recently asked members of this list and 
public-lod@w3.org about attitudes to calls for participation [1].

Following that survey, the majority view is that:

1. CfPs are not welcome on public-lod@w3.org.

2. *Some* CfPs are tolerable on this list (semantic-web@w3.org), but 
only if:

- the event is specifically about Semantic Web technologies;
- the string '[CfP]' appears in the subject line (for personal filtering).

As you'll have seen, I am making an effort to enforce this. One 
persistent spammer has been blocked from all our lists and I've just 
warned another person who sent a message about an event that, at best, 
has only vaguely passing relevance.

If you are organising a workshop and want to publicise your CfP then 
please follow those simple rules above. Messages about relevant 
workshops with [CfP] in the subject line are OK. Of course, discussions 
about Sem Web issues are welcome - that's what the list is for.

Everything else is spam.
