Please see both rule 2 and 4:
I would categorically disagree that there is ambiguity in these rules. Mass mailing several alliances with the express purpose of bringing them to this page is definitely considered spam. Moreover, the players who reported it as spam certainly deem it to be spam.
As I said, I don't have a problem with this thread existing, but using the mass mail option ingame is not an okay way to advertise it.
There is a lot of ambiguity in these rules. I don't see why it would be deemed as spam if someone receives one message about something not only relating to the GREPOLIS forums, but also which relates to an ingame feature. I recall that when a player sent out a lot of(5-10) stupid messages to my alliance, I was told it was technically not spam as it related to game. What changed?
Also if talking about a feature is what makes it spam, will it be okay if we go around the rule and center the message on gold whores. Since non-insulting messages about alliances have never been considered spam, I feel such messages about gold whores should not be either. We can always add that they should come on forums and voice their opinions here in the end of the message?
an example of ambiguity,
On the contrary, rule 7 says that private communication such as alliance forums can be in any language.As the game is localized in several versions, players shall always use the language English in this version, this applies, but is not limited to messages, player profiles and such.
