Esteemed Colleagues:

I am the editor-in-chief, the team leader, for the _Carolina Communique_.
The _Communique_ is the monthly newsletter of the Carolina Chapter, STC.
My team and I post a World Wide Web version of the _Communique_ that we
call the _Carolina Cutter_. The _Cutter_ contains selected articles from
the _Communique_. We publish the articles in full.

It is highly inconsistent for the STC leadership to discourage publication
of newsletter articles on the Web. When I was Job Bank manager last year
for the Carolina Chapter, the rules stated that I could not discriminate
against non-members. I had to help anyone who called. The Carolina Chapter
holds meetings open to members and non-members alike, and we don't
charge anyone for admission. We also give away copies of the _Communique_
to prospective members.

BTW, I can't imagine many non-STC members or people uninterested in STC
reading the _Carolina Cutter_.

Our newsletter team looks at the Web pages as a way to promote STC membership,
not a way for people to avoid paying dues.

So, I ask the STC leaders out there: are we going to discriminate between
members and non-members, or aren't we? I'll go either way on this, as long
as we're consistent accross all STC activities.
