Spamming, indiscriminately sending copies of the same message to a large number of people. is not permitted.
As an aside, this is a really restrictive definition of spamming.   People posting a single message, utterly unrelated to the group or ongoing topic, that is of a promotional nature or meant to drive traffic to a given website is spamming.

In a group related to, say, apple growing in northern climes, someone chiming in with a single post regarding testosterone boosting miracle herbs is spamming.

Most people recognize spam when they see it.  I don't think it needs to be closely defined, as it cannot be.
