Proposal to amend the 'Behavior' section of our Code of Conduct
so "Behaviour or speech which directly advocates or perpetuates racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, religious sectarianism, or classism" also includes "fascism, authoritarianism, casteism, ageism, linguicism, misogyny, xenophobia, biphobia"

It may also be helpful to link each of these words to definitions in our wiki page.

Side note: Is there a word that means "discrimination/fear of drug addicts"?

Racism, classism and ableism are all tied up in it of course, but I don't know of any words that describe that particular intersection of discrimination

For those that are worried, Sunbeam does have a policy against allowing membership to those that identify as fascists or nazis, but doesn't have a policy against fascism or nazism itself. This is a pretty significant loophole for dogwhistling that needs closing imo

@GreenandBlack I'd say something like "anti-addict behavior" or "discrimination against people with a substance use disorder" cause that's like, the Official Medical Terminology

@GreenandBlack since this has passed and no one has stepped forward to take issue, d'you want to add the extra bit to the wiki? I think @squeakypancakes will have to add it to the server pages (unless I have access to that, in which case I'm happy to do it). It might also be worth posting a quick check in about adding 'anti-addict behaviour" to what was proposed. Just like a 'is this okay, reply if not' type thing.

@puffinus_puffinus @GreenandBlack I've abandoned the server stuff on the wiki for just having a text file on the server.

@puffinus_puffinus @GreenandBlack Everything I was wanting to put on the wiki about our server I've just stuck in a text file on the server.

re: sbc meta 

@GreenandBlack sorry for my ignorance, but can you trust the result of this poll to be only SBC members?

re: sbc meta 

@balrogboogie not until we switch to Hometown or Eugen implements local-only posting. It's either posting this poll here or posting it on loomio, and barely anyone uses the loomio anymore :/

re: sbc meta 

@GreenandBlack fair enough. I went to boost it and stopped when I realized I'd just be adding to the non-SBC people who might see it and taint the results

anyway I think it sounds great, but i'm not an SBC member so I didn't vote :)

re: sbc meta 

@balrogboogie @GreenandBlack I think it's pretty cool that we can use our platform as both a social gathering place, and a sort of "town hall" or whatever, where we can make decisions about our social gathering place.

@GreenandBlack kinda wonder about the one 'no' vote...

@teslas_moustache @GreenandBlack I'm almost certain that's a troll. I would imagine 'no' voters would step forward with reasons, or at least, they would be encouraged to do so.
