I want to tell y'all something I love about #fosstodon.
We're small (<1000 weekly users), but we have a *huge* team of moderators: https://hub.fosstodon.org/about/the-team There are six of us—more than the team a mastodon.social!
That means that we pretty much always have *somebody* around to moderate.
It also means that no one person speaks for the whole instance. We have a whole team devoted to enforcing our CoC. We might not always agree, but we're all working to make #fosstodon welcoming for everyone
@codesections kev has made it quite clear that he is not, in fact, working to make fosstodon welcoming for everyone. Kick him out or shut up.
I disagree with many statements Kev has made in his *personal* capacity. But I also see him—and others—working hard to keep the site running well.
And my broader point is that, since there are six of us, you don't *need* to agree with any one person to be safe and welcome
@codesections a person who disagrees with your own code of conduct is not fit to moderate in accordance with that code of conduct.
Kev's statements make it clear that he doesn't buy into your code of conduct.
If you have him on your mod team at all, you have demonstrated your priorities, and I cannot trust you.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
