me and my friends play with three rules.
1. If you "self-serve" you get pelted in the back.
2. If you apologize for kicking it out you get pelted in the back.
3. If someone gives you a decent serve and you catch it with your hand, you get pelted.

Most of the etiquette I observe has been mentioned here already, but I'll reiterate for posterity's sake. When kicking in a circle, these are the rules I think everyone should follow (and teach to all newcomers):
- Don't serve to yourself.
- If you have to spit, do it away from the circle.
- Don't throw out wild energetic kicks in some stupid effort to "save" a hack that's gone out of control (this is how bags get lost).
- Don't use your foot to flip a bag up off the ground unless it's your own bag and you don't mind if it gets ruined quickly.
- If you can't consistently pull off a particular kick/stall/dex/etc., then don't try to do it in the circle. A show off who drops the bag is both annoying AND pathetic.
I didn't include things like not using your hands or not paying attention because those should be completely obvious even to someone who's observing a kicking circle for the first time. The five things listed above are all things that people actually do, and each newcomer to the circle should be given the courtesy of being told that these five behaviors are considered offensive.
