      Can I Use HRNET to Advertise My Product or Service?
      ================================================================

      HRNET exists to promote the exchange of ideas and information between
      professional HR practitioners, HR academics and HR service providers.
      It does NOT exist to provide a channel for advertising products and
      services to its subscribers. HRNET@ONElist and its list of
      subscribers should not be used for commercial purposes or to perform
      proprietary work. Sending unsolicited advertisements to HRNET or its
      list of subscribers is considered 'spamming' and can be grounds for
      losing your HRNET membership. We consider 'spam' to include any
      message posted to HRNET purely for the personal gain of the author
      and offering nothing of value to the group other than the service or
      product being offered.

      Job postings, conference announcements, and the posting of articles
      and essays are acceptable as long as they are kept short and are
      clearly identified in the subject line of the message. Such postings
      may contain a link to a web page or email address where additional
      information or the full text of an article may be found. (Articles
      should not be posted to HRNET without the permission of the copyright
      holder.) Vendors are welcome to tell subscribers about the services
      or products that they offer when doing so in the context of a
      relevant professional discussion on the list. In order to be
      acceptable, a message posted to the list must offer some information
      of value to subscribers beyond the product or service being
      advertised.

      New subscribers to HRNET are encouraged to spend some time "lurking"
      on the list in order to get a sense of the kind of traffic other
      subscribers are comfortable with. Subscribers who are unsure whether
      a message they wish to post to the list is appropriate may ask the
      coordinators for advice. Subscribers who believe they have received
      spam through HRNET or as a result of their HRNET membership should
      send an email to the list coordinators. The coordinators may be
      reached at: HRNET-owner@....

      Subscribers of HRNET are reminded that, under United States law, it
      is unlawful "to use any telephone facsimile machine, computer, or
      other device to send an unsolicited advertisement" to any "equipment
      which has the capacity (A) to transcribe text or images (or both)
      from an electronic signal received over a regular telephone line onto
      paper." The law allows individuals to sue the sender of such illegal
      "junk mail' for $500 per copy. Most states will permit such actions
      to be filed in Small Claims Court.
