  1. Thinking about this discussion from six months ago and the bifurcation between a code of conduct that applies solely to open source project contributors versus all community members. Was the code of conduct applied here? zachleat/1099315438918483970

      React explicitly states that their Code of Conduct applies only to “project participants.” What is a project participant? To me this reads like it exempts community members. github.com/facebook/react/blob/master/CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md

        The length of the React-specific Code of Conduct document is embarrassing. A community of React’s size should have their own Code of Conduct and not punt to Facebook. The “full text” that is linked does not mention React at all. engineering.fb.com/codeofconduct/

          The Code of Conduct is linked up prominently from the How to Contribute page—great! reactjs.org/docs/how-to-contribute.html This is more evidence that it exempts community members, though, as it’s missing from the Community Support page: reactjs.org/community/support.html

            The argument here is that React can’t be held responsible for its community, as the React community is vast. React née Facebook should not escape scrutiny this easily for its community or societal problems of scale. They made their California King bed, now they must lie in it.

              As an aside, to me this is a huge warning sign to me that I need to invest big-time and be more proactive about eleven_ty’s Community resources. It’s very sparse, now—that needs to change. (and please don’t ever put Eleventy in your bio unless you work on the project ❤️)
