Replying to myself here...

Thanks to everyone.  I'd missed the spamhaus "spam definition" which will
be very helpful in wording a few things.  And the prize for "best TOS"
goes to Steve Sobol from "justthe.net".  This one is great:

I especially like the pdf generator. :)

Now I'll have to see what the lawyer thinks.

Thanks again everyone,

Charles
