When players play in ELITE, as part of the tourney registration, they must first click on the box....
"I have read over the Eliters General Tourney Rules and the Backgammon Specific Game Rules
and agree to abide by these rules."
This acknowledges ALL of the rules not just the rules of the game. Below is the rule that best suits the discussion at hand. If one has never read the rules it wouldn't be a bad idea to do so.
Code of Conduct
Eliters was founded with the specific goal of establishing a league that was governed by principles of civility and good sportsmanship. We take the maintenance of these standards very seriously, as this is what sets us apart from other established leagues on the Net. Friendly people and clean fun is what Eliters is all about. There are other leagues better suited to aggressive, in-your-face play and behavior.
Our tournament Directors and other Staff are specifically instructed to take as a high priority the maintenance of discipline in our game lobbies and at our game tables. By far the majority of our players have gravitated to us because they have learned that they can rely on Eliters to keep them from being subjected to aggressive, boorish behavior and unsportsmanlike conduct.
Accordingly, the first principle of Eliters is:
Players are expected to conduct themselves in a civil manner and treat all others with respect. Failure to do so is cause for disqualification from a Tourney. Repeated unacceptable behavior is cause for removal from the League.
In a general sense, this is what we expect of all Elite Members and Staff:
Obscene language and aggressive trash talking are unacceptable in Eliters.
Personal attacks, or the taunting/denigration of members, league or staff are unacceptable.
Any harassment of or vocal, public dispute with Eliters staff is unacceptable. TD decisions are final and not open to dispute on the spot. There are channels for the advancement of complaints: any TD will tell you how to use them.
Delay or obstruction of tournament play is not acceptable: players must be on time and must contest their tourney matches expeditiously.
Players are expected to be familiar with all Eliters tournament general rules and game-specific rules of the leagues in which they are registered, and to abide by these rules.
Players are expected to promptly report all matches they have lost to the tourney page.
Members are expected to read and abide by Eliters policy regarding multiple IDs.
Any form of cheating is cause for immediate banishment from Eliters.
An extensive list of categories of unacceptable behavior and a discussion of the penalties for such can be found at the end of this section under "Rules Enforcement".
