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.

Worse than that. That definition didn't mention anything about on or off topic. And it's the nature of groups to send messages "to a large number of people." And "indiscriminately" is waaaaay too vague. Scrap the whole thing.
