# Code of Conduct

## Conduct

* We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming
  environment for all, regardless of level of experience, gender
  identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal
  appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality,
  or other similar characteristic.

* Please avoid using overtly sexual nicknames or other nicknames that
  might detract from a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for
  all.

* Please be kind and courteous. There's no need to be mean or rude.

* Respect that people have differences of opinion and that every
  design or implementation choice carries a trade-off and numerous
  costs. There is seldom a right answer.

* Please keep unstructured critique to a minimum. If you have solid
  ideas you want to experiment with, make a fork and see how it works.

* We will exclude you from interaction if you insult, demean or harass
  anyone. That is not welcome behavior. We interpret the term
  "harassment" as including the definition in the [Citizen Code of
  Conduct][CCoC]; if you have any lack of clarity about what might be
  included in that concept, please read their definition. In
  particular, we don't tolerate behavior that excludes people in
  socially marginalized groups.

* Likewise any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting or other
  attention-stealing behavior is not welcome.

## Moderation

These are the policies for upholding our community's standards of
conduct. If you feel that a thread needs moderation, please notify
[@shepmaster][].

1. Remarks that violate our standards of conduct, including hateful,
   hurtful, oppressive, or exclusionary remarks, are not
   allowed. (Cursing is allowed, but never targeting another user, and
   never in a hateful manner.)

2. Remarks that moderators find inappropriate, whether listed in the
   code of conduct or not, are also not allowed.

3. Moderators will first respond to such remarks with a warning.

4. If the warning is unheeded, the user will be "kicked," i.e., kicked
   out of the communication channel to cool off.

5. If the user comes back and continues to make trouble, they will be
   banned, i.e., indefinitely excluded.

6. Moderators may choose at their discretion to un-ban the user if it
   was a first offense and they offer the offended party a genuine
   apology.

7. If a moderator bans someone and you think it was unjustified,
   please take it up with that moderator, or with a different
   moderator, **in private**. Complaints about bans in-channel are not
   allowed.

8. Moderators are held to a higher standard than other community
   members. If a moderator creates an inappropriate situation, they
   should expect less leeway than others.

We strive to go the extra step to look out for each other. Don't just
aim to be technically unimpeachable, try to be your best self. In
particular, avoid flirting with offensive or sensitive issues,
particularly if they're off-topic; this all too often leads to
unnecessary fights, hurt feelings, and damaged trust; worse, it can
drive people away from the community entirely.

If someone takes issue with something you said or did, resist the urge
to be defensive. Just stop doing what it was they complained about and
apologize. Even if you feel you were misinterpreted or unfairly
accused, chances are good there was something you could've
communicated better — remember that it's your responsibility to make
your fellow humans comfortable. Everyone wants to get along and we
are all here first and foremost because we want to talk about cool
technology. You will find that people will be eager to assume good
intent and forgive as long as you earn their trust.
