Ok, for me, I'd chop off the last part though - "unsolicited commercial
or organizational email".  I think the emphasis should be on the
unsolicited part, if I want your stuff I'll request it, thank you.  I
mean Debian did just start sending me the debian-user mailing list,
regardless of whether I was interested or not.  

Spammers don't want your respect, they want your money (or money
substitute) -- even the non-profit ones.
