New ARIN Mailing List Acceptable Use Policy

Posted: Thu, 27 Mar 2008

This message is being sent to all ARIN mailing lists.  If you are subscribed to more than one ARIN managed mailing list, you will receive multiple copies of this announcement.

At its 10 March meeting, the ARIN Board of Trustees adopted a new Mailing List Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) for all ARIN public mailing lists. The AUP sets forth general guidelines of acceptable list conduct and calls out a number of specifically prohibited activities. A section on reporting violations and enforcement is included, along with procedures on how both are to be accomplished.
