Our goals is to have a small number of easy-to-follow policies for users, in the interest of ensuring that you can do what you want to do, our administration task is as easy as possible, and no one goes to jail.
We require that every user who has a SWARPAnet login account
be reachable via e-mail at
This is for our benefit and for yours, so that we can track down users
quickly in case of maintenance emergency, or just to keep you up-to-date
on what's happening at SWARPAnet. We are not going to abuse your address
or sell it to anyone. In order for this to work, you need to either:
You may switch back and forth between these options at will by letting
us know. It's also fine if you want to use a
file on a temporary basis (for instance, to forward your mail elsewhere
while you're on vacation), but, if you want to stop using your SWARPAnet
address as a primary address, you should let us know.
We run SWARPAnet because we enjoy doing so. If our users do bad
things, it makes us much less happy. We like being happy. Therefore,
if you do bad things, we will not allow you continue to be a user.
Sending spam from a SWARPAnet machine would be bad. Using a SWARPAnet
machine to try to break into another machine, also pretty bad. Filling
/var to see whether anything interesting will happen,
yup, bad. Use your judgment here, and, if you are unsure about whether
something would be bad, ask us.
