This post is to let all users know that the forums Code of Conduct has been updated in light of recent topics and events.
In particular, a user ( @lawzec ) post was removed without an explanation for the political content it was discussing. The complete deletion of the thread was an out-of-process action by a member of the mod team , this is now addressed in the updated Code of Conduct.
Specifically the Zcash Foundation has updated the Code of Conduct with the following:
(new text is in italics)
Moderators will post publicly the rational of non-personal administrative actions (such as removing or moving posts) and will closely follow the Moderation Policy
Please Do Not: Post political content that would be viewed as endorsing or campaigning for any political candidate. The Zcash Foundation is a 501©3 non-profit organization and as such are “absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office”
Thank you for understanding and continuing to make the Zcash Community forums a welcoming place for all Zcash users.
