One of the major misdeeds that can be commited on this BBS is harassment. This can happen in several ways:
- Sexual harassment: somebody X-es you with the question if you are interested in Net-Sex with them. So far there is nothing wrong unless that Alien uses a lot of filthy words that offend you. You reply them and tell that you aren't interested. It is an offence if that Alien keeps on begging, flaming or does any other offensive things even after you told them to back off.
Netsex is only allowed in X-land if you have the permission of the other party, and in Cybersexers Anonymous> (Quadrant #69).
- Flaming: Flames are only allowed in X-land if the other party is not offended by them and in F.E.'s FLAMING DEPARTMENT> (Quadrant #25).
If this has happened to you, what should you do
to avoid this happening again? First off we would like to have evidence
of the offence, so we can confront the offender with it. For this you
can use the command Quote Intercom eXpress
messages. Press shift-" to quote X-es.
Then enter that harrassing aliens handle and your entire X-conversation
with that user will be sent to the Emperors as a
yell. You can also do the following
- Talk to the person who's harassing you. Most of the Aliens are sensible
people, who will understand your point of view.
- Put them on your X-enemies list.
