## Our Standards



@@ 31,6 32,38 @@ Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
* Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a
  professional setting

## Other behavior guidelines

There is a cultural force called “cancel culture” where people are judged
too harshly for things they either did a long time ago when the behavior
may have been acceptable, things that can very well be false accusations,
jokes in bad taste, having a reasonable political opinion (even if we
do not agree with the opinion), or things no reasonable person would
consider unacceptable behavior.

That in mind, please do not do any of the following, regardless of
whether the accused is alive or dead:

* Please do not attack someone for something they did or believed a 
  long time ago, unless one can present solid evidence that the 
  alleged wrongdoer should had known the action (or belief) in 
  question was not OK *at the time*.  This is a fundamental human 
  right: People can not be tried for *Ex Post Pacto* crimes.
* Please do not assume someone is guilty of a heinous or criminal act
  without proof beyond a reasonable doubt they did the act in question.
* Please do not assume that a poorly done joke has been done to actually
  denigrate a group of people without looking at the context of the joke,
  including when the joke was made and the reason for the joke.
* Please do not attack somone or assume someone is a terrible person 
  because they hold a political or other opinion one may disagree with, 
  unless a reasonable person would infer the political belief and/or 
  opinion in question is unacceptable.

It comes down to this: Any and all forums for discussing open source 
software I work on are not “social media” forums.  The purposes of any
and all community resources is to improve software, *not* to find
stuff to get worked up and angry about.

## Our Responsibilities
