Unsolicited Broadcast Email
Here is a nice set of rules about how to manage a mailing list
without offending anyone. -->HERE<--
The basic idea is never put people on a mailing list without their
permission in advance.
Our Majordomo software makes this easy. Its automation asks your
new subscriber to return a unique key to prove they're really
requesting a subscription. It defends against pranksters who
subscribe victims to lists to cause trouble for the victim or
the list operator.
Don't let this policy make you afraid to send mail to people.
You can send all the mail you want, as long as everyone on any
list you use for sending requested the mail somehow.
Here's a simple rule from
that works pretty well:
If I can't figure out why you sent this message to
me in particular, then the message is probably spam.
