(TFT) "Home Rule" updates

Things have been a little quiet lately - perhaps this will stir up
the discussion.

Chris Nicole's updated the "Home Rules" list compiled by Andrew Morris
and done a fine job of turning the whole thing into HTML.  Included this
time around are some of the new talents originally published in TSG.
As always, the website's at http://www.brainiac.com/tft/

I'd like to include a little of our off-list email on the topic:

I fully agree with Chris, and it's exactly why I started the list.  Not
everyone will agree on the rules, or the necessity of them, but it's
always interesting to read the two sides.

I think that we may as well go for it.  While all this stuff is
copyrighted, I believe the intention was to have it distributed to
anyone was interested, so I think this is the last best place for it.
As we've beat to death in the past, we have no intention of wantonly
destroying the holder's rights, but most of these articles were written
by fans for fans, and were meant to be discussed and used.

In the case of TSG, there may be articles (or issues) where the rights
are held by people other than HT.  In those cases, we should make an
effort to find the holder and ask.

Nope - anyone here on the list have a clue?
