The legalese below sounds rough! Personally, a little rougher than may be needed? What it says is please don't spam the comments. When we get 7 comments that are the same verbatim, even if it appears they are thought out, they just will never get approved.
If you want to comment, PLEASE use your real name (or nicname), not an anchor text, (those get deleted too). We do not spam your forums, please don't spam ours. Fair?

OTI Corp. prohibits the use of their website and/or services in any manner associated with the transmission, distribution or delivery of any unsolicited bulk or unsolicited commercial e-mail ("Spam"). You may not use any OTI Corp. services to send Spam. You also may not deliver Spam or cause Spam to be delivered to any customers of OTI Corp..
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (15 U.S.C. 7701, et seq., Public Law No. 108-187, was S.877 of the 108th United States Congress), e-mail sent, or caused to be sent, to or through the OTI Corp. webiste or service may not:
- use or contain invalid or forged headers;
- use or contain invalid or non-existent domain names;
- employ any technique to otherwise misrepresent, hide or obscure any information in identifying the point of origin or the transmission path;
- use other means of deceptive addressing;
- use a third party's internet domain name, or be relayed from or through a third party's equipment, without permission of the third party;
- contain false or misleading information in the subject line or otherwise contain false or misleading content;
- fail to comply with additional technical standards described below;
OTI Corp. does not authorize the harvesting, mining or collection of e-mail addresses or other information from or through the website or its services. (We do not even do that unless you opt-in to receive the occasional email.) OTI Corp. does not permit or authorize others to use the OTI Corp. services to collect, compile or obtain any information about its customers or subscribers, including but not limited to subscriber e-mail addresses.
OTI Corp. does not permit or authorize any attempt to use its services in a manner that could damage, disable, overburden or impair any aspect of any of the services, or that could interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of any OTI Corp. service.
If OTI Corp. believes that unauthorized or improper use is being made of any service, it may, without notice, take such action as it, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate, including blocking messages from a particular internet domain, mail server or IP address. OTI Corp. may immediately terminate any account on any service which it determines, in its sole discretion, is transmitting or is otherwise connected with any e-mail that violates this policy.
Nothing in this policy is intended to grant any right to transmit or send e-mail to, or through, the OTI Corp. website and/or services. Failure to enforce this policy in every instance does not amount to a waiver of OTI Corp.'s rights.
Unauthorized use of any OTI Corp. services in connection with the transmission of unsolicited e-mail, including the transmission of e-mail in violation of this policy, may result in civil, criminal, or administrative penalties against the sender and those assisting the sender.
Violators of the CAN SPAM Act may be subject to “cease and desist” orders or penalties from the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) of up to $11,000 per violation, (that is a bit steep). Criminal prosecution is also possible in the case of egregious offenders, which can result in penalties such as fines, forfeiture of proceeds and equipment. The worst offenders can also be subject to prison time. (Ouch!)
