Kali Player Guidelines

Everybody wants to have fun, and to ensure an enjoyable experience for as many people as possible, Kali reserves the right to determine, in its sole discretion, what constitutes generally accepted standards of online behavior and may, without notice and at any time, suspend or terminate your access to the Kali System.

You may not engage in conduct or communication while using the Kali System which is unlawful or which restricts or inhibits any other user from using or enjoying the Kali System. You agree to use the Kali System only for lawful purposes. Set forth below are some common examples of impermissible conduct. This list is not exhaustive. Kali reserves the right, but does not assume the responsibility, to restrict conduct which Kali deems in its discretion to be harmful to individual users, damaging to the communities which use the Kali System, or in violation of Kali's or any third party's rights. You acknowledge, however, that communication over the Kali System and the Internet often occurs in real-time and Kali cannot, and does not intend to, screen communication in advance.

You may not post or use the Kali System to:

  • harass, threaten, embarrass or cause distress, unwanted attention or discomfort upon another user of the Kali System or other person or entity;

  • cheating during gameplay, including but not limited to modification of the game program files;

  • post or transmit sexually explicit images or other content which is deemed by Kali to be offensive;

  • transmit any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable content;

  • cause the screen to "scroll" faster than other users are able to type to it or carry out any action with a similar disruptive effect;

  • impersonate any person, including but not limited to, a Kali official or employee;

  • disrupt the normal flow of dialogue in a chat room or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users, individuals or entities;

  • post or transmit chain letters or pyramid schemes;

  • post or transmit any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, or other forms of solicitation to other users, individuals or entities on the Kali System;

  • intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regulation; or

  • "spam" by posting or sending more than one unsolicited message or piece of mail to a single address or in a chat area.

Some of the above types of impermissible behavior are discussed in more detail below:

  • Offensive Communication.  The Kali System is a community-oriented service composed of many different communities of people. If you use vulgar or abusive language online, even if masked by symbols or other characters, or engage in other impermissible behavior, you may either receive a warning, or be temporarily suspended from access to the Kali System, or your access may be terminated immediately and you may be subject to civil liability and/or investigation and prosecution by law enforcement.

  • Harassment.  Harassment occurs when a Kali user targets another individual or entity to cause distress, embarrassment, unwanted attention, or other discomfort. Kali does not condone harassment in any form and may suspend or terminate the access of any user who harasses others. You may have a disagreement with someone's point of view, but personal attacks, or attacks based on a person's race, national origin, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disablement or other such affiliation, are prohibited. If you have a disagreement with someone's point of view, address the subject, not the person. This provision shall not be construed to prohibit actions against fictional characters or other fictional entities in the context of normal game play.

  • Graphic Files.  Kali prohibits the transfer or posting on the Kali System of sexually explicit images or other content deemed offensive by Kali.

  • Scrolling.  "Scrolling" means repeatedly causing the screen to roll faster than users are able to type to it.  It is caused by a user entering a set of random characters or by repeatedly entering a carriage return or taking any action with a similar disruptive effect.  Scrolling is an expressly prohibited form of disruption.

  • Impersonation.  This can involve the portrayal of another person or entity, such as the impersonation of Kali staff.  Users must avoid the portrayal of Kali staff or other persons in all forms of online communication, including, but not limited to, user names, user profiles, voice, text or graphic chat and message postings.  However, impersonation without deceptive, harmful or defamatory intent is not prohibited. 

  • Room Disruption.  This includes purposefully interfering with the normal flow of dialogue in a chat room.   Room disruption may occur by repeatedly interrupting conversation between Users, by acting in such a way as to antagonize, harass or create hostility in a chat room, using a "bot" program during chat sessions that sends or replies automatically, or by making commercial postings, solicitations or advertisements.

  • Chain Letters and Pyramid Schemes.  Transmission of chain letters and pyramid schemes of any kind is not allowed on the Kali System. This material places an unnecessary load on the Kali System and is considered a nuisance by many users.  Certain chain letters and pyramid schemes are illegal.  Letters or messages that offer a product or service based on the structure of a chain letter are a waste of resources and are not permitted on the Kali System.

  • Advertising and Solicitation.  You may not use the Kali System to send unsolicited advertising, promotional material, or other forms of solicitation to other Users. You may not use the Kali System to collect or "harvest" User names without the express prior permission of those Users.  Kali reserves the right to block or filter mass email solicitations on or through the Kali System.

  • Improper Use of Proprietary Materials.  Use of material which is subject to the rights of any person or entity without the express permission of the rights holder is prohibited and will result in the termination of your access and possible civil and/or criminal liability.

  • Spamming.  Your access may be in jeopardy if one or more of the following offenses are reported:  a) Posting frequent and/or annoying messages in a chat session;  b) Posting an off-topic message to a mailing list (as defined by the mailing list's rules); c) Sending unsolicited mail or messages to more than 25 people.   If repeated spamming occurs, we reserve the right to terminate your access to the system or the mailing list in question, as appropriate.

If you witness any conduct that violates Kali's usage guidelines, you may log the offensive behavior using the “File/Capture to File” setting within the Kali software and contact complaints@kali.net.  Kali will handle information you provide in its sole discretion, and may decide to take no action.
