Code of Conduct

JoinJabber is a community dedicated to the concern of end-users of the Jabber federated network. It promotes cultural diversity and international cooperation; we want to empower people to communicate without any form of oppression or barriers. See our goals for more information.

We've drafted a list for the mediation team to use as a base when a conflict arises. This is the kind of content that we would like not to see within our community:

  • Racist, misogynistic, anti-trans, anti-gay, ableist slurs, or other derogatory pejoratives for oppressed identity groups (unless you belong to that group and are reclaiming the term).
  • Blatantly racist, casteist, ableist, sexist, anti-trans, or otherwise offensive and bigoted discourse.
  • Any form of stalking, harassing behavior, such as doxxing, evading blocks, repeated hostile messages against a user or a server.
  • Symbols and slogans associated with fascist regimes and/or fascist or white nationalist movements.
  • Pornographic and/or sexualized images.
  • Pedophilia content, in all its manifestations.
  • We do not accept colonialism, imperialism in all forms, nationalism (above all nationalism of nation states) and militarism.
  • Promotion of capitalism or meritocracy.
  • Cryptocurrencies or blockchains.
  • Messages promoting or encouraging pseudoscience, conspiracism, or breaks with reality.
  • Arguments that seek to deny or cast doubt on historic or ongoing acts of genocide.
  • Purposeful misinformation.
  • Religious proselytizing/recruitment.

Reports are to be addressed to the mediation team.

This is the kind of content that we would like to see within our community:

  • Assume good faith.
  • Be respectful.
  • Consider the space and the ability of others.

This list is not exhaustive and the mediation team may decide to take actions disregarding the list if necessary.

A member of the community not doing anything explicitly against the Code of Conduct may also be requested to leave if they take too much time and energy away from the mediation team.

The following text should appear in the topic of our online rooms:

 1All of that in whatever device we want and with our own rules. Following consent principles.
 3We follow the JoinJabber CoC:
 5The culture we want to encourage in the room:
 6* Consent: No unsolicited advice, respecting the autonomy of people using our server/app, respecting the privacy of other people in the network
 7* No assumptions about a man dominated space or a white, Christian and from the EU/US.
 8* humility and empathy. people that know tech are not smarter or care more about subjects like privacy than other people. to that end we avoid the terms "user" or "normie".
 9* be open for self-reflection of our communities/people/figures/organizations. They can be wrong or do wrong things. We *should* speak up when we see them do wrong and it's okay to reform, remove the people that did/enable it or create new ones and denounce these that don't want to change.
11This room is not for you if you think...
12* that all problems can be fixed with tech
13* that "freedom of speech" means everyone is obligated to listen to you
14* that the gender ratio in tech is a non-issue or is caused by women being "innately disinterested" in tech
15* that CoCs are oppression
16* that software accessibility is a lesser concern
17* that people should use Linux or other FOSS even when it is not a good fit or they can't
18* that developers are superior to people using the app/translators/designers, and the only ones whose opinions matter
