Your small tech org, user group, or open source community could, for just USD$200, get a code of conduct evaluation, a report, and a half-hour meeting about next steps. From/with an expert. This is AMAZING value for money, in my opinion. http://lifeofaudrey.com/2018/07/16/coc-consult.html
internet politics, garbage nerds
Crypto-fascist nerds know that they can hurl bad takes into social media like a toaster into a jacuzzi. They don't give a shit about She-Ra; the "outrage" is a carrier wave. It's about making everything about them. Some cartoon you'd probably never give a second thought to, because it's for kids? About them, now. Them, them, them. I'm not sure exactly when this was memetically weaponized the way it is.

"If there's one thing that the history of online games have taught us, it's that griefers will not be contained. Griefers break free, they expand to new territories and crash through barriers, painfully, maybe even dangerously, but, uh... well, there it is."
"You're implying that a group composed entirely of carebears will... grief?"

Here is some social skill starters:
1. Not everything you see is about you or directed at you, and does not require a response from you. You might not be the intended audience at all and you might not have the context to understand. Don't interrupt conversations or @ people you don't know when this is the case
2. Before you speak, ask yourself "why am I saying this" do you think others will enjoy hearing it? is it useful or productive? is it novel?
