What are the essential bullet points of a 'standards of conduct' for an online community to govern itself peacefully and efficiently?
ANSWER FROM OPEN A.I.
Here are some essential bullet points that could be included in a standards of conduct for an online community:
Collective Self Governance
December 18, 2022
In the Twitter space and Cardano community, the matter of collective self governance comes more to the forefront.
Since today's tweets brought my attention into focus on this subject, I write to express my thoughts and feelings. Opinions can change as awareness expands, and this is meant as one starting point. If anyone quoted herein prefers not to be included, I'll edit. The quotes don't necessarily follow each other though they may read so.
"The hardest part about this whole @SBF_FTX saga is that there are so many of us trying to make the world a better place and his/her lies, deception, fraud, graft, corruption and lack of any modicum of internal controls just set my industry back by several years…" - ProofOfJohnny
Your feelings are heard, your perspective honored. From mine, this also presents the community with a great opportunity to learn from it, expand our awareness, and develop tools, education and motivational resources to enable our more capable self-governance. - Gary
"So which humans are... Worthy? If setting the standards by which other humans may or may not conduct themselves? I would say that there should be no censoring of tweets or accounts, which does not necessarily mean there are not consequences to the speech you choose to exercise." - Adam Dean
Please give some examples of consequences without censorship. When people violate standards of decent conduct repeatedly, suspension of accounts is a reasonable option. Knowing humans, people will violate. It cannot be left to the people to decide fully the standards. Otherwise, for example, Musk and his family would be at risk.
Musk has the greatest risk in his Twitter adventure. He's invested billions, he has a right to take measures he deems appropriate. He has the most complete overview which none of us have. He has a responsibility to protect his family. He polls, it seems he tries to find balance.
Complete perspectives don't fit into 280 character tweets, and this subject is worthy of deeper discussions. My perspective, all beings are worthy of being. Social standards are something else. Humans are both complex and complicated. - Gary
"I guess that's the thing. Everyone is worthy and standards shouldn't be limiting who you are but what you do. People should be free to say anything except something that violates other people's freedom. We all should be free of threats and harmful behaviour." - Lazy 6oy
Since Twitter is not yet a decentralized platform, ultimately such decisions still rest with @elonmusk. The whole subject of collective self governance is worthy of deeper discussion than a few tweets. I'm writing something on it now and will post. Yes, freedom of speech in the context of Twitter means to me expressing opinions within a clear standard of conduct -- which standard could be largely determined by the people if Musk chooses. - Gary
"So Twitter is a collective but the rules have to apply to individual worthiness and the collective worthiness. That's the challenge."
That's part of the challenge imo. I see the limited views of each of us, and our own psychospiritual or emotional disturbances as the greater challenge. Tools and education can improve this but the motivation has to come from within. This is my practice:

Can you get a human to read this (Peaceful Mind) on YouTube? It's hard to listen with that video." - Nick
I'm glad to send you the text to read and record, @LifeIsFunThankU. Just DM me and we can exchange email addresses. It's also on my website. I've come to enjoy the synthesized voice every morning, but that's me. - Gary
I've seen no evidence that the Cardano community, for example, is emotionally mature or capable enough to govern itself well, and have expressed this concern. No response. Tools, education, and self motivation are needed to bring us to place of worthiness to conduct ourselves. - Gary
"Do you think @ElonMusk is being entirely too nice to left-wing media activists who knowingly shared info that could have place Musk's and his family's lives at risk?" - Tom Fitton
It's not a matter of being 'too nice.' These things are complex. Freedom of speech in the context of Twitter means expressing opinions within appropriate boundaries. The journalists were out of line, imo. But @elonmusk seems to try to find balance, and for that I respect him.
@elonmusk polled the people. The people voted for immediate restoration of the journalists rather than in 7 days. I voted for 7 days. Musk was not too easy on the journalists. The people were. - Gary
ABOUT COLLECTIVE SELF GOVERNANCE
This is my current opinion, which can change with expanded awareness.
Any collective is comprised of individuals. The capability of a community to govern itself well is determined by the character and quality of each person in the collective.
Peaceful self-governance requires a higher degree of individual emotional stability, expanded awareness, and ownership of responsibility and accountability than is currently found generally.
With Asperger's and misophonia, I'm subject to emotional overload and reactive behaviors, and practice every day to embody the higher qualities. For this reason, the challenges are my friends because they provide the resistance for building my muscles of a Peaceful Mind and the Present Moment.
As one place to start, I've collected resources on my website, such as WHET. Yesterday I learned of another resource which seems worthy to explore, Open A.I.
I asked Open AI Chat,
How can an online community learn to peacefully and efficiently govern itself?
"Online communities can learn to govern themselves peacefully and efficiently by establishing clear rules and guidelines for behavior, and by enforcing those rules consistently and fairly. It can also be helpful for the community to have a diverse group of moderators who are trained to handle conflicts and facilitate discussions in a respectful and unbiased manner.
"Effective communication is also key to the smooth functioning of any online community. It's important for members to listen to each other, respect differing viewpoints, and be open to constructive criticism. Encouraging open and honest dialogue can help to prevent misunderstandings and conflicts from arising.
"Finally, it's important for the community to have a clear system in place for resolving disputes and addressing issues that arise. This could involve setting up a system for reporting and addressing inappropriate behavior, or establishing a process for mediating conflicts and reaching consensus on decisions.
"Overall, it takes effort and commitment from all members of the community to create a positive and collaborative online environment. By working together and following agreed-upon guidelines, an online community can learn to govern itself peacefully and efficiently."
How can a person improve their emotions?
OPEN A.I. ANSWERED:
There are many ways a person can improve their emotions, and the specific strategies that will be most effective will depend on the individual and their specific needs and goals. Here are a few general strategies that may be helpful for improving emotions:
Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness involves being present in the moment and paying attention to your thoughts and feelings without judgment. It can help you become more aware of your emotions and how they affect your behavior.
Engage in self-care: Taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally can help improve your overall well-being and emotional health. This can include things like getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and engaging in activities that you enjoy.
Seek support: Surrounding yourself with supportive people can help you feel more connected and understood, which can improve your emotional well-being. This can include family, friends, or a mental health professional.
Learn to manage stress: Chronic stress can take a toll on your emotional health. Finding healthy ways to cope with stress, such as through relaxation techniques, exercise, or spending time with loved ones, can help improve your emotions.
Practice gratitude: Focusing on the things you are grateful for can help shift your perspective and improve your emotional well-being. Consider keeping a gratitude journal or sharing what you are grateful for with others.
It's important to remember that improving emotions is a process and it may take time and effort. It's also important to be patient with yourself and to seek professional help if you are struggling with persistent negative emotions or if your emotions are causing significant problems in your life.
