UN-MONITORED TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:

UN-MONITORED TRAFFIC does not apply to any domain account consuming 10% or more of systems resources. Following are a list of sites that will often require more than 10% of our systems resources: Multiple domains residing at a single IP address, domains with archives or galleries, (i.e. .gif, .jpg, .exe, .zip, .tar, etc.), and domain accounts offering download files.

We are not saying that your web site can not contain such files, however if at any time they consume 10% or more of our systems resources you will be contacted to resolve the problem.

UNACCEPTABLE ACTIVITIES:

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 briantafoya.com by spamming from some other source), trolling (posting controversial messages in newsgroups to generate responses), mail bombing (inundating a user with email without any serious intent to correspond), generating a higher volume of outgoing mail than a normal user (10% 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 (abuse@briantafoya.com).
