Some ground rules.

These are set and enforced by the moderators.

  1. Do not use slurs or racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist or otherwise discriminatory or hateful jokes or language or promote white supremacy, anti-Semitism, transphobia or other hateful ideologies.
  2. Do not harass anyone, participate in group harassment of anyone, or otherwise engage in personal attacks. Posting or threatening to post other people’s personally identifying information (“doxing”) constitutes harassment.
  3. Do not be intentionally antagonistic. A post or reply designed to provoke a confrontation is not acceptable.
  4. Do not post spam. A toot that is nothing other than a link constitutes spam, as does any overly commercial self-promotion. (It is fine, however, to toot about your own projects and share what you are excited to be working on — just keep the toot itself interesting).
  5. Do not “shitpost” - while humorous posts are allowed, and actually encouraged
  6. Do not post about inflammatory, controversial subjects without a Content Warning.
  7. Do not engage in name calling, ad hominem attacks, or any other uncivil behaviour; criticize ideas, never people.
  8. Do not tone police. Toots may violate the standards of civility we set on DinDon, but you should not criticize users for their tone. Report them or feel free to block them. In neither case should you criticize their tone.
  9. Do not debate moderation actions in public toots. If you disagree with how a moderator enforced this CoC you may direct-message the moderation team or email
  10. Do not toot in languages other than English, Swedish, Russian (which makes moderation prohibitively difficult).
