Under the net means that the whole foot is completely past the center line. It is legal if the foot or the vertical projection of the (underside of the) foot touches the line. Hands and other members (heh hehe) are illegal.
Shirt in the net is illegal; hair in the net is not.
If someone could have played the ball and it hits the curtain and they wouldn't have made a fault to play the ball (eg run onto other court) then it is a do-over.
Backrow players may hit in the front row as long as they contact the ball when it is not completely over the top of the net. For example the back row setter may jump and punch the ball over, but not be completely above the net and the point of contact. This would not be a fault.
You can never attack a ball which is completely on the opposing team's court. (But there are some cases when you can block it).
If all the players are bugging you, tell the captains that only they should address the referree.
If you have any questions, please let me know....
