In my server's newsgroups, I have been advised almost unanimously that use of the referral script would constitute a violation of my server's no spam policy. The reasoning was that the recipient of the email has not requested it, and therefore by definition this is spam. I am very concerned about this, as the server we are about to move to for actually charges $25 for every spam complaint logged against a servee (is that a word?).
I would like your opinion on this Max. Anyone else who has any thoughts on the issue is welcome to contribute. If you have used the script before--have you ever received complaints?
