Spamming

Spam is, first and foremost, a numerical metric-posting substantively similar articles individually to multiple news groups is spamming by definition. This form of Spam is sometimes referred to as "excessive multi-posting" (EMP). Appalachian Technologies considers "multi-posting" to 10 or more groups within a two-week sliding window to be excessive. Appalachian Technologies' servers currently limit the number of allowable "cross-posts" to 9.

Hostile attacks or invectives (flames) aimed at a group or an individual poster, are generally considered inappropriate in Appalachian Technologies' service groups. Flames in the non-service groups are discouraged. Many news readers offer filtering capabilities that will bring certain messages to your attention or skip over them all together (kill files).

Appalachian Technologies' customers may not cancel messages other than their own messages. A customer may cancel posts forged in that customer's name. Appalachian Technologies may cancel any postings, which violate this AUP.

Web

Using an Appalachian Technologies' web site address or an Appalachian Technologies hosted web account to collect responses from unsolicited commercial e-mail is also prohibited. |top|

Internet Relay Chat

The use of IRC bots is prohibited. The violation of any accepted policies on IRC servers is prohibited. |top|

Excessive Bandwith

Appalachian Technologies' account descriptions specify any limits on bandwidth and disk utilization. The use of bandwidth or disk space in excess of those limits is not permitted. Bandwidth utilization is determined by the total number of bytes transferred from an account's Web and FTP space. Disk utilization is determined by the total number of bytes required to store an account's web, FTP, and mail data.

If Appalachian Technologies determines that excessive bandwidth or disk space utilization is adversely affecting Appalachian Technologies' ability to provide service, Appalachian Technologies may take immediate action. Appalachian Technologies will attempt to notify the account owner by e-mail as soon as practicable.
