Legislative Relief - was Re: Motion for a new POST NSF AUP

Here are two items from the MichNet Acceptable Use Policy that
seem to apply:

    -- Unsolicited advertising is not acceptable. Advertising is
        permitted on some mailing lists and news groups if the mailing
        list or news group explicitly allows advertising. Announcements
        of new products or services are acceptable.

    -- To respect the privacy of other users; for example, users
        shall not intentionally seek information on, obtain copies of,
        or modify files, other data, or passwords belonging to other
        users, or represent themselves as another user unless
        explicitly authorized to do so by that user.

Note that solicited advertising is OK.
