I'm already seeing people complaining about the *presence* of a code of conduct on this site. Say they might leave, etc. Code of conduct doing its job, I'd say! That's the power of social federation: to create manageable moderated social spaces for everybody without disconnecting a part from the whole. Just go somewhere else.


@wilkie I liked how Imzy handled the issue: the site TOS was sort of the federal Constitution (no hate speech, harassment, trolling), but users could set up sub-communities with more/less restrictive codes of behavior.

Honestly, though, whenever I hear someone huffing about repressive TOSs, my first assumption is "anarchist troll". I've had lengthy, in-depth conversations with people about sensitive topics, and I've never had to resort to savagery to make a point.
