Code of Conduct
This is not a legal document. As of writing, this community is very small and is entirely run by one person. I could copy a well-thought-out code of conduct from somewhere else—or worse, I could try and come up with one on my own—but I don't think we'd benefit from either. If we find we could use an actual code of conduct, its writing should be collaborative: it should be owned by our community.
In the meantime, here is where I stand:
- I'll start by saying (as many mastodon instances do) that I'm committed to combating racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia.
- I believe it's impossible to make literally every human feel welcome and included; welcoming one person can always risk excluding another. So I see no hypocrisy in excluding you for intolerant behavior. There are mastodon instances that celebrate intolerant behavior, and you can join one of them.
- If you make someone feel hurt, unsafe, or unwelcome, then I expect you to do whatever it takes to make it right.
