services or network equipment is prohibited. It is the Member's responsibility to ensure that
their network is configured in a secure manner. A Member may not, through action or inaction,
allow others to use their network for illegal or inappropriate actions. A Member may not permit
their network, through action or inaction, to be configured in such a way that gives a third
party the capability to use their network in an illegal or inappropriate manner.
m. News - MaxPrecision Development Members should use their best judgment when posting to any
newsgroup. Many groups have charters, published guidelines, FAQs, or "community standards"
describing what is and is not considered appropriate. Usenet can be a valuable resource if used
properly. The continued posting of off-topic articles is prohibited. Commercial advertisements
are off-topic in most newsgroups, especially regional groups not specifically named for such.
The presence of such articles in a group is not indicative of the group's "intended" use. Please
familiarize yourself with basic Usenet netiquette before posting to a newsgroup.
