Sending numerous copies of the same or substantially similar message with the intent to disrupt a server or account (‘mail bombing’); Spamming Newsgroups: Commercial advertisements are unwelcome in most Usenet discussion groups and on most e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate posting may result in account cancelation. See the newsgroup or mailing list’s charter for whether advertising is allowed or not. Sending a message to many different off-topic newsgroups, is particularly unethical and will be treated as such; Mail may not be used to harass or intimidate others.

If a recipient asks to stop receiving e-mail, YOU must not send that person any further messages.
