Polite, respectful discourse is expected of every user of this instance. Don't be a jerk. I, the instance administrator, reserve the right to define "jerk" in any given context.
Complaints received from other instances about the behavior of spanner.works' users will be taken seriously.
The behavior described below is categorically disallowed on this Mastodon instance, spanner.works. Engaging in this behavior will result in the unceremonious termination of your account, following a pointed note from the administrator, making the termination sting all the more.
You may not post:
- Content insulting or expressing a bias against a marginalized group, including but not limited to content that is racist, bigoted, misogynist, transphobic and/or homophobic, nor content that directly states or broadly implies that people of a certain body type, body size, skin color, country of origin, country of residence, sexual orientation or other characteristic are of less worth than others.
- It is of course permissible to link to, quote or make reference to content to which the above criteria apply if the post itself containing such a link or reference is clearly not expressing or advocating those views, and for purposes of discussion. A properly labeled Content Warning is recommended for such content.
- Content that actively encourages illegal behavior, or that promotes or aggrandizes violence, in word or in deed.
- The discussion or advocacy of self-harm is not in itself grounds for termination, though it should be noted that such advocacy could be interpreted as urging others to harm themselves. If you are in difficulty and/or are considering harming yourself, please think of first visiting these resources:
