Digital Civility Challenge
I embrace the challenge to be a leader in making the internet a better and safer place. I commit to do my part every day by living up to the four Digital Civility Challenge ideals:
Live the golden rule
I will act with empathy, compassion, and kindness in every interaction, and treat everyone with dignity and respect.
Pause before replying
I will pause and think before responding to things I disagree with. I will not post or send anything that could hurt someone else, damage someone’s reputation, or threaten anyone’s safety, including my own.
Stand up for myself and others
