For these reasons, users violate ilovemahj.com policy and the Service Agreement when they engage in the following prohibited activities:
SpammingSending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information repeatedly through ilovemahj.com's messaging system or repeatedly submitting similar posts to the system.
