As a high-quality web hosting provider to thousands of customers,
KarmaBiz values its good reputation. Accordingly, it is important
to us that our customers use our services and the Internet in

so and seldom need to refer to these AUPs. Nonetheless, the following
constitute examples of unacceptable uses of KarmaBiz's services,
which will result in suspension, or termination of the customer's
Affronts to Etiquette
Unacceptable activities 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 KarmaBiz by spamming from some other source),
trolling (posting controversial messages in newsgroups to generate
responses), mailbombing (inundating a user with email without
any serious intent to correspond), generating a higher volume
of outgoing mail than a normal user (over 10% 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

will be in violation, please ask first (abuse@KarmaBiz.com).
