The following rules are not, and are not intended to be, all-inclusive. This document contains guidelines to be followed; the network operators will decide whether you have violated them. Neither attempts to find loopholes, stretching the boundaries of these guidelines, nor rules lawyering are appreciated here. Realize that this network is run by the operators for their own pleasure, and is run at their expense. We consider you a guest here, so we ask that you act accordingly.
Harassment is not allowed on the network. If any user on the network asks you to stop doing something to them and you continue to do it, that is harassment. You may be banned from the network for harassment, with or without warning.
Profanity is not allowed in certain channels, such as #draconic and #mt.halenguide. Engaging in profane speech in these channels may result in being warned, or removed from the channel.
Personal Attacks, against others or their beliefs, is frowned upon by the network operators. For instance, calling someone ‘crazy’ or ‘deluded’ is an attack. Polite discussion and questioning is allowed, but any personal attack will result in disciplinary action.
Racism against any sentient being is unwelcome on DraconicNet. If you must feel animosity against any group, including human beings, keep it to yourself. Disciplinary action for racism varies by offense, up to and including being banned from the network.
Spamming or Hacking the network or any of its users is considered a security threat, and is a very serious offense. Don’t do this, or you will be subject to legal action and a permanent ban from the network.
Akill Evasion is an offense. If you have been banned for what you consider to be an unjust reason, email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the issue privately.
Illegal Activity, when observed by the network operators, will be reported to your local law enforcement agency, and will also result in a ban from the network.
We try to allow reasonable benefit of the doubt wherever possible, but a user is not necessarily ‘innocent until proven guilty’. Although all of Draconic’s servers are currently located in the United States, this network does not need to, and does not, model its justice system after that of the US government.
