Please note that this is a professional group created with an aim to foster fellowship and good etiquette among our fraternity as we network with one another so that everyone may benefit by utilizing a good service & sharing resources. We do acknowledge that individuals from different countries and cultures may have different attitudes towards issues and we are fairly lenient in our assesment of what constitutes "abuse" and "dishonourable conduct". In such cases, we adopt a progressive step wise disciplinary approach starting with a polite advisory notification. Complete ban of access to all our services is a last step that is undertaken as we really do not want to 'police' our members, but bad etiquette can really mess up the service for a lot of users and so, we try to keep an eye on things to promote the well being of all users. The Administrators are responsible for maintaining the decency and decorum of the group and in case of any dishonourable conduct from the members, the membership may be terminated leading to a complete ban on access to all IOA resources and no refunds given.
