Community guidelines


Here are a couple of principles that will go a long way in any online interaction. I humbly request you carefully consider these before attacking your keyboard in a fit of rage over a perceived disagreement or potentially challenging opinion, mine or anyone else's.  

"Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by ignorance"

This is a minor change to Hanlon's Razor, as I don't like the use of the word 'stupid', which is often undermining or condescending. Basically, assume the best in people. This will also serve you out in the world at large.

"Don't be kak, be lekker"

This is one of the mottos of AfrikaBurn. When you show up in a new, open space, the best way to engage is with kindness, curiosity and compassion.
