First of all, I agree with the initial speaker. I haven't seen anybody
violate any stated policy. I am surprised that more reflectors don't STATE
their policy via a login screen!

As for Brian's "deny" suggestion, well, I would guess that many would-be
violators are now on dynamically assigned IPs, and therefore the 'deny'
command is not going to be very effective.

I guess we are going to need a 'vchip' for CUSeeMe pretty soon! ;)
