Spam Clogs Your Arteries
Okay, almost everyday you get it online via email and may
have caused someone else to get it, too, although by accident, of
course. But most of us have a pretty good idea when spam
opens in our window. And I'm not talking about that
non-kosher mystery meat that comes in a can from your local
No Bulk Emails
Still, not everyone really understands the concept of spam
and or that they may even create spam on our social network.
Its innocent enough behavior, and we know you’re not doing it
intentionally, let’s fine out more. Mainly, sending
out bulk email—one email sent out to many people at the same
time—clogs up the system. We discourage this type of bulk emailing,
but encourage sending an important message requesting help or news
to just a few close friends.
Rules are for Everyone's
Important news should be written as a blog or forum
discussion, so that everyone can read and comment.Any type of
business advertisement or solicitation is also considered spam. Can
you imagine if all 2200 members did this? Keeping our network clean
of spam protects everyone. Contacting anyone online
without prior permission or posting such details on their comment
wall is also considered spam. It sounds awfully harsh, but
did you know that social network guidelines say that spammers may
be lose their privileges?
We don’t need that time drain of sorting through an
annoying backlog of emails. With their clever
attention-grabbing but false subject lines, spam compels people to
spend their precious time opening up emails to read what is often a
bunch of nonsense and often an unwanted sales
In essence, spam is considered rude, improper, insulting
and just downright bad behavior. By the way, bulk email is
considered anything over five non-personally addressed emails
(not using the person's real name in the message). This is
totally spamming and totally a no-no on the Internet!
However, it is easy to avoid spamming on our HWC network.
It requires just a little knowledge and some thoughtfulness on your
part. You have the opportunity to enter your website link and
blog link on your profile page. If anyone wants to learn more about
you or contact you, they can click on your image. Please don’t post
your biography on every blog or discussion.
instead of posting and sending TIP OF THE DAY emails, you can
post them on your profile page via the UPDATE function.
Consider this similar to writing a TWITTER TWEET. In
fact, you can even link to your TWITTER
As a bonus, when
you write a discussion or comment on someone’s blog you can click
the SHARE button to post to many other social networks.
Remember: our rules are to protect the interests of
everyone. Sending a big hug for maintaining courtesy and
etiquette on our network.Remember this is your network, but is also
a network for thousands of other nice people like you! You
want to be treated the same way you treat others, yes? In
fact, isn't this called the GOLDEN RULE? Like courtesy and
etiquette, we believe the GOLDEN RULE should also remain a
vital part of our world.
