Exercism is a platform centered around empathetic conversation. We have a low tolerance for communication that makes anyone feel unwelcome, unsupported, insulted or discriminated against.
If you see or experience abuse, harassment, discrimination, or feel unsafe or upset, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take your report seriously.
We actively monitor for Code of Conduct (CoC) violations and take any reports of violations extremely seriously. We have banned contributors, mentors and users due to violations.
After we receive a report of a CoC violation, we view that person's conversation history on Exercism and related communication channels and attempt to understand whether someone has deliberately broken the CoC, or accidentally crossed a line. We generally reach out to the person who has been reported to discuss any concerns we have and warn them that repeated violations will result in a ban. Sometimes we decide that no violation has occurred and that no action is required and sometimes we will also ban people on a first offense. We strive to be fair, but will err on the side of protecting the culture of our community.
Exercism's leadership reserve the right to take whatever action they feel appropriate with regards to CoC violations.
