provides web hosting to numerous clients, which means that we have a responsibility
to protect each client and to provide the best service available. The following
guidelines were established to ensure these crucial obligations are met.
These include spamming (sending unsolicited advertising to those with which
the customer has no existing business relationship, posting off-topic advertising
in newsgroups); spoofing (using a return email address which is not the
valid reply address of the sender or sending an email message which does
not contain enough information to enable the recipient to identify the party
who is really sending the message; passive spamming (promoting a web site
hosted by WebmasterMoms by spamming from some other source), trolling (posting
controversial messages in newsgroups to generate responses), mailbombing
(inundating a user with email without any serious intent to correspond),
generating a higher volume of outgoing mail than a normal user (20% or more
of available system resources), and subscribing someone else to an electronic
mailing list without that person's permission. A message is considered unsolicited
if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or sent to a recipient
who has not requested the message. Making an email address available to
the public does not constitute a request to receive messages. Distribution
of mass emailing programs is also prohibited. All recipients on a mailing
list must have personally subscribed. Mailing lists may not be used to distribute
unsolicited email. Any customer repeatedly "mailbombed" or that
attracts such behavior will be asked to leave. If you are not sure if your
actions will be in violation, please ask first by sending email to abuse@WebmasterMoms.com
