I'm supposed to act civilized. What does that mean?
Am I allowed to advertise/pimp/spam my website/services on your site?
My brother/friend/some random wandering stranger accessed your site from my computer and abused it, and now my network is banned. What can I do?
What will happen if I write a script to turn your lights on and off every second?
First off, you're not the first person to think of that. Secondly, the software has built in countermeasures to detect and stop automatically scripted activity. It would work for a little while, longer than someone would reasonably do it manually, but not very long from a script's perspective. The software will then start to implement delays, and if the activity continues, a permanant ban. Your choice.
I acted like an obnoxious tool, and now nobody will talk to me, what gives?
