Attempt collaboration before conflict. No one is perfect, but let's try to understand why we disagree first. Learning to de-escalate a hostile situation is a life skill, let's practice some of it here.

Don't keep silent if you observe hurtful behaviour. One can only try and fix what one is aware of. Please report your concerns to communitybuildersio@gmail.com. All reports will be handled with discretion.
