Cognitive dissonance:

We have developed a Code of Conduct/Reporting Guidelines so that people who see something that violates our principles can take action -- either through a conflict resolution approach, or by reporting the incident, either to the CWG or to Mastodon admins.

At the same time our timelines are full of conduct we say we don't want.

Seems to me this is an organizing problem, specific to this time and place. If we can figure it out, we can make a good contribution.

I would really urge people to look at the conflict resolution part of the Reporting Guidelines -- if our goal is to hold a space within which to cultivate human relations of cooperation, then de-escalation and dialogue are important approaches. If that feels unsafe, you can get support and/or go the more formal route of making a report...
