I just wanted to share some thoughts. This is not designed to address
any one situation, but to address a problem that is overarching. I
include myself in this address as I am sure I've been guilty as well.
I've recently seen some very respective contributers violate this.
We need to remember that in a volunteer environment that all things
are volunteer. We someone does something "dumb" we should not
suppose that they knew better and respond with name calling, talking
down, and other such things. In all things that we do, and in all
areas; development, editing, press, meta, et cetera. We should be
kind to one another. Just a thought - if someone does something
"dumb" politely explain why such action was wrong, and the correct way
to do it. Remember, that all volunteers do not know better.
Just a sane thought to ponder.
Thank you, Jon. You are a part of the thinking and the culture that is going
to help this Project survive.
