@embr @franzi A popular mod was kicked out a few weeks ago because she actively refused to use people’s pronouns in an internal chat. After that she was like “it’s not in the coc (yet) and I was just asking if it will be okay to continue to avoid using pronouns altogether”.

In other words: yeah, that community sucks.
