To comply with the new US Federal Law, CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, Gaytronix will strictly enforce the following policy.
We do not allow Webmasters to market websites under this program through the transmission of unsolicited bulk e-mails, therefore it is extremely important that any mass e-mailings by you conform to our policies. Moreover, you need to be aware of the fact that many service providers have their own standards and policies when it comes to mass mailings to their customers/members and you must comply with these policies as well: AOL Unsolicited Bulk E-mail Policy

Do NOT do this.
