IRC RulesIRC on irc.radio1.org allows freedom of "speech" but there are common ground rules plus #Radio1's attitudes:
Never flood an user or a channel - repetition
of what you typed over and over again at high speed, continuous CTCP
requests, long pastes and so on. This type of action can result in you
being killed temporary in order to stop mass data passing through servers
Never nuke an user or a channel. Nuke
is a coding script sent out deliberately by an user to his/her victims
in an effort to crash the victim's computer, programs, or to lose connection.
Nukes will result in an AKILL on irc.radio1.org and it is illegal in
E.C. countries, the US and Australia.
No Dumping/Pasting - Masses of unwanted
information in a short time. Similar to flood but this time, usually useless
information or long releams of text. Again, this results in a kill (Flooded
off) since dumping/flooding causes Network hiccups such as splits since
a server can't handle the excess traffic anymore or the people on that
server cannot handle the data burst in a given time.
Never harass or threaten an user - this
pretty much speaks for itself. Extreme cases will result in being removed
from the network.
No abusive behaviour - like swearing, bad
mouthing, whinging, etc, about other people.
No illegal trading or activities on irc.radio1.org
such as underage pornographic pictures, warezs (pirated games).
Above rules are just a few common sense rules and abuse of this could result in a kill (temporary removal from the network).
Many individual channels have their own
rules and abuse of these rules usually results in a kick or ban or in extreme
cases, AKICK, common ground rules for some channels are:
On IRC, not just in the irc.radio1.org
group, everyone form an opinion of you by your words, use of language,
behaviour and actions. So, "Think before you type" is a VERY wise
advice - once people have form an opinion of you (and they will very
quickly, whether you like it or not), it will be very difficult to
change it; especially if you did something very offensive!
