We have a Code of Conduct for this mailing list and in-person meetings we sponsor.

Short version:

unclug is dedicated to a harassment-free linux education and sharing experience for everyone. Our anti-harassment policy can be found at:

Introduction and basics:

unclug is dedicated to providing a harassment-free linux education and sharing experience for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, alma mater, department, age, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any unclug venue, including the mailing list and in-person talks. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or reported to relevant authorities at the discretion of the organizers.


Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, age, alma mater, department, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

In addition to mailing list contributors, participants at in-person, face-to-face events are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, presenters should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the unclug organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, removal and banning from the mailing list, or expulsion from the in-person event. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organizer immediately. Organizers can be identified by their distinctive name badges or by reviewing the mailing list info page at:

For in-person events, unclug organizers will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
