I am one of the admins of the loco team list for Ubuntu Colombia.
I deeply resent any sarcasm and bad mouthing of other operating systems
and Linux distributions, particularly any references to them like
Micro$oft. I strongly believe that's against our CoC and it sets the
mood for other non-constructive comments and trolls.
I've found whenever such discussion is allowed, over time it escalates
into more, and trolling ensues which generates a lot of noise and people
unsubscribe quickly when they see that.
I've replied with public friendly reminders and usually it dies off, but
the size of our community is now such that this is not working. We have
a link to the Code of Conduct in each email footer, but it's mostly
Short of limiting subscriptions, moderating and kicking out the "bad
apples", what other suggestions would loco teams have about this ?
Or maybe I should just shut up and watch the thing implode. Who know, it
may even take care of itself somehow. Teenage crisis ? :)
