specific circumstances including but not limited to the following:
Illegal activities: The law requires ADnD.COM
to report any criminal activity that it becomes aware of to the
appropriate authorities. It is the responsibility of the account owner
to be familiar with current laws and regulations.
Email: Email accounts are for personal or business
correspondence only. Unsolicited Commercial Email (otherwise known as
UCE - or spam) is strictly prohibited and violators will have their
accounts terminated immediately. Sending unsolicited email to one or
more addresses regardless of how the addresses were obtained may be
considered spamming and is grounds for account termination. Use of a
ADnD.COM address or any address of a domain hosted by ADnD.COM
as a return address for replies to spam is similarly prohibited.
ADnD.COM may at its discretion employ filtering techniques to
block inbound email from known sources of spam and email abuse, and
may also filter incoming email for known viruses.
Chat: The IRC chat server is provided as a service for
the use of all, and all users must familiarise themselves with, and abide
by, the rules that are posted from time to time on this website, and
within the server messages.
ADnD.COM may at its discretion employ Administrators, and IRC Opers to
act as helpers and enforcers. Whilst such people will act with the full
authority and backing of ADnD.COM. Any views expressed by them that are
not also published on the website, or in the server messages, are not necessarily
the views of ADnD.COM or any of it's proprietors.
At no time will ADnD.COM tolerate any of the following abuses to the
chat system by any members, or other users of the system.
- Users will immediately dessist from attempting to contact or follow
around the channels any other user that has expressed a desire to
discontinue contact with that user. Failure to do so may
constitute an offence in some jurisdictions.
- Users will ensure at all times that their activities remain within
reasonable bounds of common decency. This is not an adult themed
server, and whilst ADnD.COM can hold no responsibility for the subject
matter or content of any chat activity, we will take action if we deem
your activities to constitute a moral or other threat to any minors
that may be an inadvertent audience. Be aware that exposing a minor
to moral danger is an offence in most jurisdictions.
- The Opers act at all times with the full authority of ADnD.COM and
any rulings given are final and must be obeyed.
- Users will not employ scripts that contain Trojans, or Backdoors.
Nor will they employ scripts that are designed to cause distress to
other users, or the server. ADnD.COM reserves the right to refuse
access to such scripts should they be detected.
- Users will not connect to the chat server using an open proxy.
Connecting to the chat server is implicit acceptance of this rule and
ADnD.COM uses a port scanner only for the purpose of determining
whether or not a user is employing such a proxy.
- Opers are not here to help police Chat Rooms. We feel that there are
sufficient tools within the Pseudo Clients NickServ, and ChanServ to
adequately protect your rooms. However they can be called upon to
assist with any other aspect of the Chat server, or with any abuse of
the server policy.
- Users will not set up bots or rooms for the purposes of distributing
Warez, MP3s, Porn, or any copyrighted material without the author's written
