More generally, all members of the KMUD community and their guests, when at the station or engaged in KMUD activities elsewhere, are expected to behave towards each other at all times with common courtesy and respect. Some specifics are contained in the programmer and volunteer agreements, but these are not meant to be all-inclusive.

Station staff have the authority to take immediate actions, as well as to impose appropriate sanctions at a later time, in keeping with the Policy Manual. Please refer to the problem-solving procedures that follow below.
