/me puts Admin Hat on.

Hi everybody!

The bsd.network instance has a new Code Of Conduct, viewable at bsd.network/terms or via the "Terms and Conditions" link that is sprinkled around a few places.

The TL;DR is "be cool unto others". However, since society at large has demonstrated they can't be cool, we had to write out a bunch of things.

@phessler not sure if random info or subtooting someone... here's the door buddy...

@phessler @aag @pamela may I say that it saddens me greatly that we actually need to have a Code of Conduct?

I thank you infinitely for providing us with what I like to think of as a “BSD pub” and for having the patience to sit down to write a Code of Conduct just because the world has taken such an unfortunate direction :flan_sad:

@cynicalsecurity @aag @pamela I'm not happy about it either, but I am thankful we haven't needed to use this yet.

We've only had a very small handful of problematic users, and they left on their own after pretty much everyone else shouted at them.

@phessler @aag @pamela even the friendliest of country pubs has its occasional gate crasher :flan_sad:

Let’s hope the new code keeps them from joining in the first place… but there will always be someone looking for a fight.

We shall fight back with a preponderance of flan! :flan_molotov:

@phessler @cynicalsecurity @aag @pamela

Better to have it and not need it than the other way around.

@phessler @aag @pamela:Thank you instance admins and mod for your hard work making sure uncool people are not on .network. Oh and thanks for the nice emojis too! :flan_cheer::flan_cheer: :flan_cheer:

@phessler Is there a reason why 'faith' (or religion, I don't know what the proper wording in English is) is not included in the list of examples?

@phessler @aag @pamela From my study on the topic, this looks real solid.

"We own this, and if you're an ass we'll boot you. If you're an ass looking for a safe space to hang out, here's some things we think are assy so you should just move on, you festering pustule."

@mwlucas @aag @pamela I hope you noticed that I was pretty subtle on "here's the door. I'll even guide you to it."

@phessler @aag @pamela Perhaps too subtle? I mean, you didn't even threaten to throw people in the street.

This is our local, you're the barkeep...
