The .BBS TLD is aimed toward Bulletin Board System servers, and BBS
affiliated/related/owned websites. Bulletin Board System being defined
as an actual telnet accessable server, or by a website with the
features typical of a BBS - Message bases, Email, Chat, etc... The TLD should
also allow for BBS information, support, or promotion websites. Seeing
as some BBS systems are pay to cover their bills, this TLD should allow
for commercial systems.
Of course, sending unsolicited (commercial) email, promoting
cracking/warez, or purposefully disrupting the network (such as a ping
flood or trying to kill a machine) from a .bbs TLD should be grounds
for removing the domain. If a site is no longer providing BBS type
services, that should also be grounds for removal of the domain.
