Code of Conduct

Quick Version

The Geek Feminism (GF) community is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

This code of conduct applies to all Geek Feminism sponsored spaces, including our blog, mailing lists, and wiki, as well as any other spaces that Geek Feminism hosts, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the Geek Feminism Anti-Abuse Team.

Some Geek Feminism-sponsored spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.

This code of conduct applies to any spaces potato.internet is in, but if you are being harassed by someone where the project is installed, please let us know by emailing  and please let any curators of the space know. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time.The moderator team reserves the right to exclude people from the potato.internet community based on their past behavior, including behavior outside our spaces and behavior towards people who are not in our greater community community.

In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. The potato.internet Team is not here to explain power differentials or other basic social justice concepts to you. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.

We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of potato.internet members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.


Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the potato.internet moderator Team may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all potato.internet spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other potato.internet members or the general public.
