In order to create a community where we all treat each other with civility and respect, each of us affirm that we will:
Value honesty and good will while striving to solve problems
Attempt genuinely to understand the point of view of others.
Model civil behavior and tone, online as well as in public, by:
*Being kind, while maintaining the right to vigorously disagree
*Acting respectfully toward others, including opponents
*Listening to those who disagree with us, as well as supporters.
*Making only accurate statements when defending a position.
*Refraining from characterizing adversaries as evil.
4) Challenge disrespectful behavior, courteously
5) Encourage any person or organization working on our behalf to meet these same standards for civil discourse
6) Renew our efforts, if we fail, and forgive others, if they fail.
