Relating to the announcement posted earlier, just for those of us who don't speak the language - what exactly does this entail?

Sending a message through another person. Like if I was harrassing you, and you told me to stop, then I started goading Desan into delivering messages for me.

There's a policy we engage in here wherein one user can ask to break off all contact with another (by copying staff on a message sent to the other party), and we enforce that - attempting to circumvent it or defeat the purpose - from either party - counts as a violation.

Using another person - or taking it upon yourself to be the that person - is a well-known and well-worn (as in, we are tired of it) cause of drama, so it needed to be made explicit.

Alright, thanks. I know there's also the internet proxy server thingy whatever, so I wasn't sure. ^^

That's the same principle, but then with computers instead of humans.

Basically, you talk to a proxy server, and that proxy server then talks to the actual webserver you'd like to visit, and passes the info back to you.

So I guess spam emails and popups would be harassment by proxy in both senses ;D
