Guidelines are not law and order. They exist to frame content in a way which is aligned with the purpose and style of Activist Handbook. Diversity of thought is an important principle and we want to make sure it's represented in our content.
The guidelines could use some brushing up, they are really out of date and a lot of the content relevant to moderation is currently a part of the writing guidelines. We are working on fixing this.
Activist Handbook is built on the principle of horizontal self-governance. We want to be sensitive to diverse groups of potential users. When writing moderation guidelines, make sure to check in with our Inclusivity Facilitator.
