- the service provider must have a written and enforcable policy
prohibiting any of its customers from sending any traffic to
recipients that have not requested the traffic -- including (but not
limited to) the sending of off-topic or unsolicited mail messages to
mailing list exploders, subsets of mailing list registrants, news
groups, and posters to news groups (termed "mail spamming"). The
requirement for a response to any such unsolicited message to prevent
future messages is unacceptable.
Um, wouldn't this very message I'm typing right this second be prohibited
under the sort of policy you suggest? Is that really what you want to do?
