#PUA Chat Channel Participation Rules
These rules have been established with the help of
others by Formhandle, webmaster of FastSeduction.com. In
order to participate in the chat channel, a few rules are expected to be followed.
Some are rules. Some are guidelines. They all exist to keep the chat positive,
lively, useful, and friendly. People who consistently go against these rules and
disrupt the chat system for others will risk getting kicked. For serious offences,
banned. If there is a moderator on chat and he informs you that you've
broken a rule below (referring to it by # so you can refer to it yourself), you
are expected to respect his notice and correct your disruptive behavior.
If you don't and, rather continue the behavior, you will be temporarily kicked
off. If you come on and repeat your behavior, you will continue to be
kicked until such time that the moderator deems you consistently disruptive,
after which you will be will be banned.
- RULE 1: Use and respect the universal
If someone asks you to stop
speaking to him or her or about him or her you are to oblige him
or her within your 2nd next line typed. OR if someone asks you to
leave him or her alone you are to leave him or her alone unless
it is to offer an apology or is a later date. You are also not to
talk about them to other people to incite a reaction from them.
They are obligated to also observe the same silence to and about
you. You can also ask someone to stop talking to, or about you,
and expect him or her to follow the same code of
- RULE 2: Occasionally,
women will sit in on
the chat for whatever reason. Either because their curious or want to disrupt.
Just ignore them unless they are offering some useful discussion. Don't try to
"PU" chicks in the chatroom, either privately or out in the open. That is
LAME. You'll just be branded as a clueless newbie and, if you persist, will get
- RULE 3: The chat is not a mobile phone, your
keyboard has over 100 keys... use them. No SMS language... that is irritating.
- RULE 4: Excessive use of CAPS LOCK is
distracting. Don't do it.
- RULE 5: Rude behavior is not
acceptable. Especially from moderators. If you want to jab someone with a
joke, fine. But if they civilly indicate that they thought it was rude, that's your sign to
cut it out. Persisting in "kidding" with someone after they've already
stated they felt your initial jabs(s) were rude is unfriendly behavior,
unproductive, and distracting to others. There is a clear difference
between friendly joking and unnecessary rudeness.
- RULE 6: Don't use dumb color scripts that
flood the channel.
- RULE 7: Talking should be done in English so
all users can understand it (including moderators). Non-English chats may be set up
in the future, but for now chat should happen in English.
- RULE 8: If you have a
LEGIT issue with a
moderator or other chat user, make a note of it in the channel to give them a chance to
modify their behavior. If they don't, then just ignore them as best you can.
If, even through ignoring them, they still disrupt your chat experience significantly
(AND are wrong in doing so using these rules as a reference),
then notify one of the live OPs (Operators / Moderators). If the user you're having the issue with IS an
OP, then e-mail me, Formhandle. But PLEASE don't bother
Formhandle unless it's a
serious complaint and also don't bother Formhandle with problems like this
if you don't have complete chat logs of the interaction. Complete
means complete, not just the one or two comments which hit your ego.
DO NOT ry to solve your chat issue by continuing behavior which is causing
you issues... just stop, log, and if it continues then you have a valid
complaint with logs you can send to Formhandle. Everything else will
be ignored and you will be presumed to just be making false complaints.
- RULE 9:
No sharing or communications of sharing or downloading any non-free
(commercial or otherwise free but copyright-protected files) is allowed
under any circumstances. If you are found to be doing so, you will be
banned from chat immediately.
