Today we've updated the Librem One website with two important documents:
A short guide to staying safe online no matter what online service you are using. Like our policy document we've kept it short and to the point, with links to more detailed, independent resources if you'd like to learn more.
As well as a code of conduct that makes it clear we will respond to reports of harassment, for example on Librem Social, our opt-in social network.
@purism that's a good effort you've made. It would have been better to have the CoC atthe same time as you annunced the service, but better late than never.
However, I'm curious: why did you remove the examples of behaviours that won't be tolerated?
I strongly suggest you consult experienced folks with how Code of Conducts works and how you make them effective. “How to respond to code of conduct reports” is a book available under CC BY-SA, for a starter.
You are basically doing the opposite of what people with experience recommend. You should not take ten years to relearn everything people have learned. We don't have ten extra years, the situation is bad enough already.
@purism Your code of conduct is way better than the ones used by gafam, who says basically «we pretend to care for harassement, but actually, we don't give a fuck».
“If you see something illegal, report it to the relevant authorities. They are best equipped to handle illegal content.”
Seriously, have you ever talked to a trans person about how their interactions with the “relevant authorities” usually go?
In some places in the world, governments have explicit laws in place to target gay and queer folks. Do you believe that makes it fair for their resident to experience homophobic hate speech?
I'd like to assume you are better than that.
@purism I like it 👍
