General Expectations for Conduct
In addition to the general policies governing behaviour when using freenode, we strongly encourage all participants to adopt the channel guidelines and philosophy to help keep the network a friendly and productive place.
In particular, we would urge all users to keep the following in mind:
- We expect all users to act in good faith at all times, and this includes assuming the same of others. Where another user's behaviour admits several interpretations, work on the basis of the most charitable one until you have strong evidence to the contrary.
- freenode aims to be welcoming, inclusive, and non-discriminatory and we encourage everyone to be tolerant and respectful of others.
