If chat admin or an operator (aka monitor) ask for your response, your cooperation is necessary.Please ask before opening a p2p (person to person, or private) chat with someone. Please note that if chat admin or chat operators may open a private chat with you at any time.
Using ALL CAPS is considered yelling. If you need larger type to see better, please use the large font version of the room.
If someone asks you questions you don't want to respond, you are not obligated to answer. If they persist, politely tell them you are not comfortable giving out that information.
