Through out this thread you will see reference to the zcash community CoC, this is actually the ECC zcash Contributors Code of Conduct, and not the zcash Community Forums Code of Conduct. The forum CoC is controlled by the zfnd
edit: please note. my post was not the one removed. the removed post was in response to a post I made and was aimed at me, calling me a clown.
I am not 100% sure this is the right place to post this. I can repost this to github if you like. I am pretty sure this update would impact forum moderation though. @shawn can you confirm this please?
This change creates a number of protected classes, but does not cover all - why? This then implies some dog whistles are okay. This is a road I dont think the CoC should be going down. I think it will have a number of unintended consequences.
A lot of us are hard on the banking industry - do I now need to learn all anti-Semitic dog whistles in case I inadvertently use one when expressing my dissatisfaction with the banks?
Specifically about the clown world meme. Like I said before people use it a lot in esports and twitch chat. I am sure many people do not know it is a dog whistle - so that could stop them from contributing?
to liken this change to cryptocurrencies, you are banning plausible deniability, which is monero, in favour of t addresses.
This feels close to thought policing and I really do not like the change. You are creating an impossibly high standard.
