Ironclad encourages contributions from anyone who wishes to advance
the development of the project, regardless of gender, race, ethnic

Diversity is a huge strength, but it can also lead to communication
issues and unhappiness. To that end, we have a few ground rules that we
ask people to adhere to. These guidelines apply equally to moderators,
maintainers, and those seeking help and guidance.
Please assume other participants are posting in good faith, even if
you disagree with what they say. When people present code or text as
their own work, please accept it as their work. Please do not
criticize people for wrongs that you only speculate they may have
done; stick to what they actually say and actually do.
Please think about how to treat other participants with respect,
especially when you disagree with them. For instance, call them by
the names they use, and refer to them using words whose meanings
(as you understand them) cover those participants' stated gender
Be careful with the words that you choose. Be kind to others. Do not
insult or put down other participants. Harassment and other
exclusionary behavior aren't acceptable. Violent threats of any kind,
discriminatory language, sexually explicit content, or posting
(or threatening to post) other people's personally identifying
information without previous permissions ("doxing"), as well as
encouraging any of those behaviours, are not allowed.
If other participants complain about the way you express your ideas,
please make an effort to cater to them. You can find ways to express
the same points while making others more comfortable. You are more
likely to persuade others if you don't cause anger about secondary
