Any of the above things will result in, at a minimum, a stern warning from the moderators. It might also result in an outright banning. Note that new users will get much less leeway than established users, as we don't have the patience for newbies with an attitude. If they can't be bothered to absorb the general tone of the place before being a dick, we don't really want them here.
Note that the above list is not meant to be exhaustive. If you find a way to be a dick without violating any of these specific examples, we'll still bounce you out the door.
