Full Code of Conduct

Computerfox.xyz is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

This code of conduct applies to all Computerfox.xyz spaces, including Mastodon and any organizational spaces defined by Computerfox.xyz staff, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the Computerfox.xyz administrators and moderation team.

Some Computerfox.xyz spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.


Definitions of Harassment

Harassment includes:

  • Offensive comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, body size, age, race, or religion.
  • Unwelcome comments regarding a person’s lifestyle choices and practices, including those related to food, health, parenting, drugs, and employment.
  • Deliberate misgendering or use of ‘dead’ or rejected names.
  • Gratuitous or off-topic sexual images or behaviour in spaces where they’re not appropriate.
  • Physical contact and simulated physical contact (eg, textual descriptions like "hug" or "backrub") without consent or after a request to stop.
  • Threats of violence.
  • Incitement of violence towards any individual, including encouraging a person to commit suicide or to engage in self-harm.
  • Deliberate intimidation.
  • Stalking or following.
  • Harassing photography or recording, including logging online activity for harassment purposes.
  • Sustained disruption of discussion.
  • Unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Pattern of inappropriate social contact, such as requesting/assuming inappropriate levels of intimacy with others
  • Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease.
  • Deliberate “outing” of any aspect of a person’s identity without their consent except as necessary to protect vulnerable people from intentional abuse.
  • Publication of non-harassing private communication.

Computerfox.xyz prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort. Computerfox.xyz administrators and moderation team reserves the right not to act on complaints regarding:

  • ‘Reverse’ -isms, including ‘reverse racism,’ ‘reverse sexism,’ and ‘cisphobia’
  • Reasonable communication of boundaries, such as “leave me alone,” “go away,” or “I’m not discussing this with you.”
  • Communicating in a ‘tone’ you don’t find congenial
  • Criticizing racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behavior or assumptions

Content Warnings and Sensitive Images

Content Warnings (CWs) are a feature of Mastodon that enable you to hide the body of a “toot” (post) behind a line of text. The intended use of this feature is to provide a way to discuss sensitive and/or potentially harmful topics without causing duress or harm to anyone who might stumble upon it, though it may be used for many other things.

Images can be marked as sensitive; this is a feature which hides an image until a warning banner is clicked. Images may be marked as sensitive separately from Content Warnings, though using a Content Warning automatically marks the toot’s images as sensitive.

Clearly communicated and accurately labeled content warnings and sensitive image settings are required when having public conversations involving any of the following topics or content:

  • Sexual or Adult content
  • Detailed descriptions of harassment as outlined above in the definitions of harassment
  • Political Commentary of any kind
  • Drugs or Drug Use
  • Advertisements for Corporations
  • “Rage” toots and Toots using exclusively capital letters
  • Excessively Long Toots (longer than ~15-20 lines)

Reporting

If you are being harassed by a member of Computerfox.xyz, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the Computerfox.xyz administrators and moderation team using the Report User/Toot feature. If the person who is harassing you is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.

This code of conduct applies to Computerfox.xyz spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of Computerfox.xyz outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by Computerfox.xyz members, especially Computerfox.xyz’s administrators and moderation team, seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The abuse team reserves the right to exclude people from Computerfox.xyz based on their past behavior, including behavior outside Computerfox.xyz spaces and behavior towards people who are not in Computerfox.xyz.

In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.

We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of Computerfox.xyz members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.


Consequences

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, Computerfox.xyz administrators and moderation team may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all Computerfox.xyz spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other Computerfox.xyz members or the general public.
