Subject: RE: BS: The problem at Mudcat? Moderated thread
This comes from a "Codev of Conduct" I found on the website of Sojourners - they seem to make a lot of sense here too:

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree—even if I feel disrespected by them.

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally.

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt.

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed.

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments.
