@fosstodon Not bad. I'm not sure about the "correct view" part. But this CoC doesn't piss me off while reading it. Seems sensible. :D
@fosstodon @boblmartens @jordan31 I always looked at the phrase "correct view" as if it existed in quotes. It didn't really matter what it was as far as the CoC was concerned. Just a statement that something may be a violation of the CoC, even if the person posting it believed it was right. I'm feeling now like that may require a some clarification.

Theres a typo in there ;)
I wonder what is meant with the advocacy rule though :o
@fosstodon Hey all, looks like there's an error in the new CoC:
CW stands for Content Warning rather than Content Wall as suggested at the end of the first point under the "Additional Rules for Public Toots" section
content walls cw, CoC
@Maza XD Oh youuu :P
@fosstodon Good thing I am not a member then..
I understand political topics etc. but what's wrong with controversial topics? I mean what's the point of a community where everyone just sings the same chorus?
So I am not allowed to talk with others about why I believe that systemd is inferior to another init-system? I'd consider that pretty controversial 😁
@lx controversial stuff is fine, we just ask that it’s put behind a CW. 😁
Now, Systemd being inferior other init-systems may be a little too controversial for any CW! 🤣🤣
@fosstodon but that kind of conflicts with the CoC. It literally says that advocacy regarding controversial topics is not allowed.
@fosstodon Reading this made me realize I needed to clarify some things in the There's Life CoC. Thanks!
@masterofthetiger you’re welcome.
@fosstodon there's an unclosed parenthesis in the 4th bullet of additional rules on public toots
@fosstodon Hi, its great that you adopted a CoC, congrats!
Reading it through, it seems that it explicitly prohibits any kind of political discussion... And I am wondering how does an instance dedicated to Free Software bans political discussions when Free Software itself is a political movement...
@fosstodon "Do not toot in languages other than English"? Oh dear. I guess I'll start looking for another instance that's more tolerant of the world and its richness and diversity. English is already too dominant on the Internet. The hashtag-only search settings already make it impossible to find things on here, so it seems to be time. In the meantime, anyone looking for me can find me on Twitter, where I follow accounts in English, French, Italian, Dutch, German, Spanish, Catalan and Russian.
I think it is a good CoC. I never read the old or was aware that one exist :D . I have no problem too toot in english. It is your instance and your rules. It is like in the real world, when i come to your house, i have to respect your rules. :)
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
