In my opinion the ruling on Listening to superiors and “accepting demotions gracefully” is in bad taste.
The rule says:
“Crew members are expected to listen to their department head when given reasonable orders. While it’s okay to question your department head, ignoring their requests or insulting them may result in a demotion at the department head’s discretion. Crew members should accept demotions gracefully and are not allowed to forcefully resist a demotion.”
Now the problem with this is I have seen people get demoted and even arrested just because they question their superiors who are doing bad shit. People should be able to resist a demotion if their demotion is unjust.
For example: The HOS decides to execute someone with out the captains permission and a security officer tries to stop the HOS. The HOS then gets pissed and arrests the officer and demotes him/her. At that point I see it perfectly fit for the security officers to beat the living shit out the HOS.
