Cognitive dissonance:

We have developed a Code of Conduct/Reporting Guidelines so that people who see something that violates our principles can take action -- either through a conflict resolution approach, or by reporting the incident, either to the CWG or to Mastodon admins.

At the same time our timelines are full of conduct we say we don't want.

Seems to me this is an organizing problem, specific to this time and place. If we can figure it out, we can make a good contribution.


@Matt_Noyes Cognitive dissonance indeed.

One suggestion I'd make is that insted of trying to figure it out yourselves from scratch, building off what others have done. Have you read @christi3k's "Adopting a code of conduct is an adaptive challenge not a technical one"?
