Every Code of Conduct violation report will be treated with seriousness and care. If a member’s immediate safety and security is threatened, an individual member of the Membership Office may take any action that they deem appropriate, up to and including temporarily banning the offender from the community. In less urgent situations, at least two members of the Membership Office will discuss the offense and mutually arrive at a suitable response, which will be shared with the offender privately. Whatever the resolution that they decide upon, the decision of the admins involved in a violation case will be considered final.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of our members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
