SUPPORT DEPARTMENT GUIDELINES

1. All healing is to be supervised by Support Admin, or a qualified healer. (A list to follow once populated).

2. Once a person becomes a member of Support Staff, they are not permitted to discuss the personal lives of anyone in, or related to the Guild. This includes members, staff, admin, or anyone seeking aide from the Support Department, or the Guild in general (ie: people seeking aide from Defense Department, etc.) If permission is obtained from ALL parties involved, THEN the situation may be discussed in the context that the individuals have allowed. Situations may be discussed with the Support Admin. This excludes cases involving people seeking support (from the department, and must be discussed with the Admin) in such cases, the situation may discussed within the department (this does NOT include Birthswitch Volunteers).

3. Before counseling and/or healing occurs, the disclaimer should be recited and/or explained if necessary. (this will be added to the subject line of the #PsiInfirmary channel) The disclaimer shall read: All energywork, healing, etc. is done at the patient's own risk, is not a substitute for a doctor (or psychiatrist/psychologist in the case of counseling), and is merely an aide offered by people wishing to help.

4. Upon leaving this department (by choice, or by force) you are still bound to your confidentiality and may not break that policy (as outlined above in section 2). Upon violation of this (section 4) policy you will be forcibly removed from the Guild. Due to the severity of such a breech, this includes all current positions held, all chatrooms, and all forums. This policy covers all personal information (about anyone as defined in section 2) gained before and during one's tenure in the Support Department.

5. Serious PHYSICAL crimes should be reported to the PROPER authorities. This includes crimes covered by local legal statutes that are of a VERY SERIOUS nature ie: murder, severe assault, physical rape. Claims of abuse and/or suicidal tendencies should be directed to the hotlines listed on the Support Page of the site.

Any violation of this policy in part or in whole by log or witness testimony is grounds for immediate action up to and including termination from the Support Department and other areas of the Guild as applicable.

Additions to this policy shall be initiated by the Admin of Support and put up for vote before the Administrators of the Guild.

All members of Support Staff are required to agree to this policy and follow it, or relinquish/lose their position.

How would you be able to report a murder to the proper authorities if it was done using psionics?

G2, it is not illegal to murder someone via psionics, because the law does not recognize that it is possible to do so.

But it still is murder, regardless of the means of doing it.

Your point? (Because I'm not really clear what your point is).

Reporting murder done psionically would be pointless anyway. It currently has the credibility of "I shoot magic missles at the dark" There's no crime-lab type evidence, and there's no law against killing people with their brains. There is no currently established method of proving it. Give it 10-20 years.

Aha, witchcraft (which psionics broadly falls under) was still a criminal offence in the UK up to the 1950s.

As it was decriminalized at that point (no regulation, no crime) the point is moot, at least as far as England and Wales go. Not sure about courts in Scotland, they might still burn people at the stake.

Wouldn't surprise me, they got harsh winters up there.

You think I don't know. Well, maybe you're wrong. Maybe I'm wrong.

But assuming you are always right always puts you in the wrong.

Because assume just makes an ass of u and me.
