If one wishes to remove "strictly," fine. I just think it's important that it be made crystal clear that spamming, any kind of spamming, is a swiftly and irrevocably punishable offense. It's not a suspension, or being put on moderated status, but a "You're OUT!," offense.
Those who come to spam come for no other reason.
An odd off-topic message or off-topic topic "among friends" isn't spam, though both seem to really annoy the more anal retentive in any group. For myself, unless the behavior is constant on the part of a specific member, I think that in all groups each of us occasionally wants to ask "folks we know" in cyberspace about something that's not strictly on topic for a group and that's fine if not abused.
