Charter for alt.discuss.hobbies.small-business:

Alt.discuss.hobbies.small-business is a newsgroup dedicated to the unique American institution known as the "Mom and Pop" hobby shop. Not only will this be a newsgroup about buying and selling merchandise, contests, promotions, sales, specials and services all having to do with hobby shops, but also helping preserve independently owned hobby shops from being squeezed out of existence by the big chain franchise stores by an exchange of information on sales strategies. Trolls, Spam, crossposting, and flaming will not be permitted. It is okay for posters to place advertisements for so long as they are "on topic".
