HTML Writers Guild Guides SOP 8

Standard Operating Procedure: SPAM on the Public Lists


Quite often the difference between SPAM and public service announcements or advertisements is the number of mailing lists it is sent to.


If you see a post that violates either the PSA or Advertising rule and think the Guild's Public lists have been spammed, you should send a TALK: (subject heading) to hwg-lmoms asking if any other List Guides are aware of the post on their list.

Follow-up Activity

Based on the response from List Guides on other lists you may, at your discretion, either send the member a standard INFO post, or send a "REQUEST: Addition to spammers list <email address>" to HWG-Lmoms requesting that the member be removed from all lists and added to the Guild's list of known spammers.
