Cam Fun Rules

CamFun Rules.

We love having everyone visit our CamFun, but necessity dictates that we set some rules so we can all enjoy our time at The Swingers Mansion.

We advocate freedom of speech but HARASSMENT, RACISM, FOUL LANGUAGE, and any other DISORDERLY conduct will not be tolerated on The Swingers Mansion.
What follows is our Policy regarding illegal activity (including but not limited to warez, child-porn, sedition, harassment, drug trafficking, Nuking, spiking, flooding, excessive pinging or anything that disconnects a user from his/her services or denies their service).

Should a user or channel engage in illegal activity (ie, activity that violates UK Law) or encourage it, we will remove the users or rooms in question from The Swingers Mansion. In fact, if we have reason to think that a user or channel tends toward or conduces to illegal activity we will take action (which might range from communicating with the people in question to killing the connection or seeking prosecution).

In Addition to this the Internet service provider (ISP) of any person banned from this server for the above mentioned reasons will be sent email with a log and a time stamp of said incident seeking termination of their services under their ISP's acceptable use policy. This is done in part to safeguard the environment on The Swingers Mansion and in part to protect the system administration and machine owners on The Swingers Mansion from legal problems that could stem from tolerating illegal activity on The Swingers Mansion. When it comes to illegal activity or the likelihood of illegal activity, we will act first and sort things out later.

Our Policy regarding free speech and the restriction of expression:
To be straight forward, cursing on this site will get you banned. The Swingers Mansion completely supports freedom as it has been traditionally understood. However language as a tool can serve more than just this purpose. Language can be used in many ways, including as a tool to hurt others.
Language can be used to harm by means of threats, epithet and harassment. Such uses of language and expression have traditionally been proscribed and with good reason: None of the benefits of rational discourse accrue in such cases and much harm is generated. Any *public* expression on The Swingers Mansion of this sort (including expression linked to illegal activity) will lead The Swingers Mansion administrators curtailing such expression by whatever means necessary.

Note that by "public" we mean expression that users could not avoid (in /list, via /msg, nicks, user names, or chat on rooms, for example). To a large extent rooms can define the range of expression
that is acceptable, however harassment will not be tolerated anywhere on the site.
There is, however, recognition that speech has to be protected from government censorship or control, etc. For a democracy to work people must be allowed to express themselves. And that if we respect individuals as human beings people must be allowed to say what they mean. This is not a license to say anything anywhere, however.
Harassment can take many guises, for the most part harassment on The Swingers Mansion is deemed as: Any exchange in a room (public or private), at which ANY party involved did not consent to. If you are asked to stop discussing objectionable subject matter and you continue to discuss it. It is no longer chatting it is now harassing. Because persons chatting can be from all walks of life, from all over the world, with many varying points of view, what you consider objectionable may not be what they consider objectionable. Problems arise when a discussion changes from open minded to closed minded arguing, so often this takes place on discussions of politics and religion. These are very broad based topics and often tend to excite very deep personal feelings from parties involved. People become offended very easily when statements are made attacking their beliefs (any) whether you like them or not.

Policy on IRC Client Scripts or Add-Ons:
There are several IRC client (program) add-on scripts available on the Internet. The Swingers Mansion does not allow the use of any scripts containing tools solely for the purpose of abusing the network or harassing users. Users found running these scripts will be banned from the network with a notice sent to their Internet Service Provider. We feel no need to list these IRC scripts, if you are using one of them, you know you are using it (so do we).

Policy on Bots:
The Swingers Mansion services were designed to eliminate the need for bots on The Swingers Mansion. We would very much prefer all connections to our servers to be from persons wishing to chat. Bots are not allowed.

Policy regarding Moderators:
The Swingers Mansion Moderators have the power to keep you and your channel off of The Swingers Mansion. We expect that our Moderators will exercise that power when and only when they have cause to believe that The Swingers Mansion policies are being violated. If you believe
that a The Swingers Mansion Moderator has abused her or his power, mail us using “Contact Us” page. We will do our best to get to the root of any concerns that you bring to us. It should be noted that any user who abuses an IRCOP does so at his or her own risk.

If you are harassed:
If you encounter any behaviour that is in violation of our policies, and especially if you are harassed by flooders, please either log the incident or cut and paste it from your buffer to a text file with time
stamps and time zone. We will need all of that information when we notify the system administrator at the site in question. Send all information of your incident through the “Contact Us” link.

Rules for ALL rooms on The Swingers Mansion:

1.      The Swingers Mansion room owners are expected to maintain all polices of The Swingers Mansion in their personal rooms, failing to do so will result in your room being closed and a server ban being placed on you. This includes the people that you appoint as room operators; you as the room owner are responsible for the actions of the persons that are in your room. If they get out of line it is your responsibility to remove them.

2.      The Swingers Mansion is NOT a “Grooming” site nor is it a place to pick up underage persons; this in itself is one of the most dangerous types of chat activity on the Internet. Our room
administrators will report and deal with any situation very severely. We wish to maintain a clean and safe chatting environment for everyone.

3.      No *sex exploiting* rooms/Rooms will be permitted. We will never allow them. If a Room is so themed or designed to serve such prurient interests we will shut it down.

4.      The Swingers Mansion is an English speaking chat server, ALL languages are welcome. However, while in the public rooms you should speak ENGLISH; it is rude to the rest of the chatters to not speak English in the public rooms. If you wish to speak other than English, please create a private room for you and your friends.

5.      Typing in all uppercase letters is considered yelling in chat; it is disruptive to the normal flow of chat. Please do not type in uppercase.

6.      Scrolling, Flooding, and unnecessarily repeating yourself is rude to everyone on chat and will not be tolerated in our chat rooms.

7.      No drug rooms save for medical chat.

8.      No Gore-themed rooms.

9.      While we welcome those who serve in the UK armed forces, there will be no independent militia rooms on The Swingers Mansion.

10.     Rooms or discussion for the trading of MP3 sound files are not allowed, this is due to copyright infringement laws. This policy will not change until ALL record companies agree that MP3s are not an
infringement of the artist contract or legal reproduction laws of the United Kingdom.

11.     Advertising in The Swingers Mansion Rooms is not allowed, this would come in the form of other chat servers or chat clients, including but not limited to all of The Swingers Mansion's
competitors. The Swingers Mansion relies on revenues generated by our sponsors; illegal or unsolicited advertising limits our ability to maintain a quality service for all.

12.     We reserve the right to impose further case-by-case restrictions. This means a rule does not specifically have to be written down here to be enforced.
