ordinal.garden 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 ordinal.garden spaces, including the linux server, web host, and at local events, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the moderators and/or the community in general.
Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, moderators may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all ordinal.garden spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other ordinal.garden members or the general public.
If you are being harassed by a member of ordinal.garden, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the moderator(s) at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the person who is harassing you is a moderator, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.
This code of conduct applies to ordinal.garden spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of ordinal.garden outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The moderator(s) reserves the right to exclude people from ordinal.garden based on their past behavior, including behavior outside ordinal.garden spaces and behavior towards people who are not in ordinal.garden.
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. It may be deemed necessary—for the protection of individuals outside our community or of the reputation of the community—to identify offenders of this Code to persons external to this community (including, where necessary, in public forum). We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
