A1: If the Email has ANY commercial content, in the sense that it is touting for new or repeat business in some way, then that is it's main purpose. It is naive to think otherwise. A2: The sender should not be allowed to tack a "by the way" selling message onto an apparently non-commercial main topic, they should be obliged to send two separate Emails instead. D1: Aggravated Violations should also include the use of "hi-jacked" PCs to forward messages under any circumstances. This should be a criminal offence in it's own right also. D2: Aggravated Violations should also include any situation where the primary original origin of the sender is obscured. E: "Forward to a friend" is only acceptable where the sender is personally known to the recipient. Any variation on this should be treated as a violation, with both the originator and the sender forwarding the message being liable.
