In my recent question, I received the answer to whether a 1-point penalty was actually applied in official rules. Philip Kendall provided that it was considered impolite conduct and the offending team could lose service and be deducted a point.
That brought up whether a player is allowed to influence the referee's decision of punishment for rude conduct. Philip explained that a player is supposed to refrain from influencing a referee's decision in volleyball.
Now, is there any consequences if a player were to argue with the referee?
Philip Kendall's actual comment:
That's almost a separate question, but... Rule 20.1.3: "Participants must refrain from actions or attitudes aimed at influencing the decisions of the referees"
