List Server Acceptible Use Policy
It is the intention of Instructional Technologies that this list server be used by a wide variety of
groups to assist in academic, administrative, and professional advancement. We do, however, ask that
users review and adhere to this simple policy. There isn't much to it right now, and we hope
that it will remain that way. This policy may change from time to time in order to address issues
that threaten the quality and usefulness of this service.
Conditions of Use
- NO SPAM
Lists may not be used to distribute unsolicited commercial email.
- STAY LEGAL
Lists may not be used for illegal activities.
List managers must agree to a few conditions in order to make use of this service.
- ACCEPTIBLE USE
List managers must adhere to the List Server Acceptible Use Policy above.
- ALLOW UNSUBSCRIBES
List members must be allowed to unsubscribe from lists if they choose. List managers may not
re-subscribe an address unless the recipient has given permission to do so.
- INACTIVE LISTS
In order to conserve computing resources and extend the availability of this service to as many
people as possible, Instructional Technologies may remove a list that has seen no messages in
over one year. List managers will receive email notice before their list is removed and may
contact the listmaster with any concerns.
If you have any problems with this service, please email the
listmaster. We will try to assist you, and we may refer you to another resource, such as the
TxState Help Desk for problems we cannot solve. You may wish to
contact the Help Desk directly for problems with an email client or web browser.
- LIST NAMING
In general, our policy is to allow the list requestor to decide the name of his or her list.
We may suggest an alternative name if the requested name conflicts with an existing
list name, if we feel the name is not descriptive of the list's specific audience, or that the
list name may be confusing. For example, if the International Telecommunications Society were
to request a list named "firstname.lastname@example.org", we may suggest
"IntlTelecomSoc@groups.txstate.edu" or something similar to avoid confusion with our own
department's acronym (and besides, we already have a list by that name).
If you observe or experience abuse of this service, please contact us immediately at email@example.com
