We have stated in the past that we cannot allow the discussion
of home distillation. We must now insist in more detail that
the discussion of, the (discussion of) purchasing of, posting
photos of, or the reviewing and adoration of any home distillation
product/experiment is STRICTLY PROHIBITED on FeeVerte.

Home distillation is a criminal activity. Purchasing home brew
is also a criminal activity.

We understand how this compromises your freedom of speech and
how it will affect the discussions of the get togethers and
Absinthe in general. However home distillation is a
highly monitored criminal activity.

If you feel obliged to discuss these things please do so privately
or elsewhere.

We have very sound reasons for such a drastic directive.
Kindly be mindful of this and please accept our sincere apologies.

Regards
Kallisti & Admin

Aye, aye, cap'ns. pirate2.gif

Do you think it might be appropriate to ammend the Forum Etiquette to read something to the effect of:

Due to recent events, as of May 2004 the Sepulchritude Forums cannot allow the technical discussion of the distillation of spirits, the discussion of, discussing the purchasing of, posting photos of, or the reviewing and adoration of any home distillation product/experiment, as such activities are illegal in the U.S. and carry severe penalties. This is in order to protect the forum participants from unwanted attention from such agencies as the ATF. Please be aware that this is a publicly read forum, and keep that in mind when making your posts. Inappropriate posts will be deleted. Please contact a moderator if you have any questions.

Also, it may be wise to give 'em a heads up (as it were) over at the Lounge.

If I'm not mistaking, buying (importing) absinthe in the US is also in itself an illegal activity, which means we should stop talking about ANY absinthes poured in the US.

Just to be consistant you know...


Anyway, I understand and fully support this new rules update.

But under ordinary circumstances that does not constitute criminal activity, and this should be clarified.

Kallisti, doesn't the Homebrewing section of the FAQ break this new rule?

To my knowledge it is not illegal to soak herbs in vodka, so referring to this technique should not be problematic.

Actually I was referring to the links to home distilling sites in the Homebrewing section and the description of the distilling process in the Historical Recipes section.

Mind you, I'm not critizicing, I thought this might have been overlooked by Admin.

No, they haven't been overlooked. The direct references I supply are historical documents and I link to offsite resources for people to get practical data. I believe providing information of this nature neither endangers people here nor breaks the law.

I hope so anyway.

I would save those pages on your hard drives, just in case.

One of the unintended effects of the DMCA was that websites could be shut down not only for posting copyrighted data but even providing links to copyrighted data on completely different sites!

But copyright is not an issue here. The links are just links to information, and should be no different that a public library that might carry a book about distillation. The position of the FAQ is "we don't talk about home distillation. If that's what you're looking for, go here."

If anyone knows a link to the laws prohibiting Absinthe in general, and home brewing in particular, please post here.

I'll look myself and if I find it, I'll post it...
