Executive's Decision in regards to vandalismEdit

Where ED is different, however, is the fact that it is the ability to unblock a vandal if the need arises. This is typically not used, however it may be used in certain extreme situations such as a power-mad admin. It is important to remember that ED is not to be used lightly, and must always be justifiable. Especially in a situations such as these.

Executive's Decision in regards to argumentsEdit
If an out-of-control argument takes place, and the involved parties include a member of the ASPF, the argument must be ended immediately by ED. ED will not be used in this situation to end the argument in favor of one party or another. The parties involved in the argument must cease and desist immediately and continue their argument in a more suitable place, and under control.

The ASPF can not stress enough that ED should only be used in extreme circumstances. If it is used more than three times in one week, you will lose your right to invoke ED.
