Fictionmania Policies and User Behavior Policies


as of 12/26/98

Abuse to Users, Authors and or Operators
Verbal or written abuse of the users, authors or the operators of this system is not tolerated in any fashion. Abusers to any user, author or operators of this site will have their access blocked until they are cleared by the security departments by their ISP as not being the source. In the case of several isp's this can take weeks. Proof of non-abusive behavior to regain access does not rest with the operators of this server set. It rests with the abusers of this system and working with the security departments of their isp to prove us wrong. Tuff stance, but we will protect the users, authors or the operators of this system.
Abuse to Servers
Trying to hack into the servers or generate a Syn flood, Ping of death, IP Spoofing, Land attack, Smurf attack generation, Sequence number prediction or just plain repetitive pinging of small packets, flooding with ICMP, UDP or NetBios packets is not tolerated at all. There are many different pieces of software and hardware on this server set that generate various logging information and or that throw up alerts of various attempts to hack this server. All attempts to hack this site or disrupt it's service are immediately reported back to the isp of the offending source. If your isp does not take action, then our legal sources are ready to. This server set houses 2 commercial sites, and disrupting their ability to do business is considered a criminal offense in the State of Nevada, where these servers are located. We will file criminal charges if need be! Suspected abusers of this site will have their access blocked until they are cleared by the security departments by their ISP as not being the source. In the case of several isp's this can take weeks. Proof of non-abusive behavior to regain access does not rest with the operators of this server set. It rests with the abusers of this system and working with the security departments of their isp to prove us wrong. Tuff stance, but we have to protect our hardware and software!
Reporting Abusive Behavior
If you feel another user has been abusive to you in anyway on this site, then report it to [email protected]. Include the persons name or handle, date and time of day you feel this occurred. Make sure you include the time zone you are reporting from. Our logs are all set to the Pacific Time Zone in the United States. This would be the same time zone as either Los Angeles or San Francisco. We will try to do the math and look at the logs and figure out how your reported time of the event matches up with our logs.
Hijacking of Images, Stories and or Files
These servers employ an Anti-Hi-Jacking scheme for images, stories and files. It is our bandwidth. We paid for it. You can not use it to support your site without the express consent of the Webmaster. Do not attempt to link to files on this server and get them served to your pages.
Protection of Minors
Fictionmania is currently registered with SurfWatch CyberPatrol CyberSitter Net Nanny. We will gladly register this site with any other blocking sources that are made known to us. If you are know of another blocking service that we should belong to then please foreword that information via email to [email protected]a.org. We believe adults have a right to read the stories located on this site. However we also believe it is our duty to do what ever is humanly possible to protect minors from it. And you have that same duty to protect minors in your household from it also. Or educate those around you to the above blocking services.
