-The channel #AfterNET is AfterNET's flagship chat room. The channel is owned by Rubin, and its goal is to provide a common place for most people of AfterNET to hang out and get to know each other. It also serves as a backup help channel, a place to find IRCops, and a general topic discussion room. We are very liberal with what you can talk about, but we draw the line at hate-based language which is likely to make other members of AfterNET feel unwelcome, such as racism or anti-homosexuality. See below for details on the rules.+The channel #AfterNET is AfterNET's flagship chat room. It is a private channel owned by Rubin, and its goal is to provide a common place for most people of AfterNET to hang out and get to know each other.

 Important! Level "OP" in #afternet is different than most channels. OPs are only allowed to use their +o in the following situations. In all cases, if the person to be kicked is a regular, they get a lot more leeway. Give them two warnings before being kicked. Any use of +o not indicated here will result in loss of ops in #afternet without warning. Those who show responsibility may be promoted to MANAGER and may then use more discretion in banning for other reasons. Important! Level "OP" in #afternet is different than most channels.

-Under no circumstances should you kick, insult, or provoke a user solely because of the Internet Access Service they choose to use (WebTV). Remember, all of us were at some point "lame." None of us were born with universal knowledge of IRC etiquette. Most of these users are not out to cause trouble, they are simply strangers in a strange land. Work with them. We did it for you.
