CODE OF CONDUCT
DEAR FELLOW CITIZEN OF THE WORLD
Thank you for your participation.
Insulting, derogatory and/or any other disrespectful discourse is inappropriate and unacceptable.
An Ad Hominem is arguing with and/or attacking the person instead of addressing the topic in case it is not about the person. Try not to respond to such attacks, except to politely expose the situation and redirect the discussion to the topic.Threats are not allowed, whether towards individuals, groups or the community as a whole. Threats are disrespectful and utterly against the train of thought of TZM.
Participate with the correct intentions for a certain project, task, assembly, content or anything in the movement. While the movement’s activity is inclusive for all, do not burden, distract, be disrespectful or problematic during that activity.
It is everyones and your responsibility to uphold and inform others participating within TZM our Code of Conduct to protect yourself, others and the integrity of TZM. It cannot be done alone and therefore everyone is required to do this.
Instead on fixing all the things that you do not agree with another person, focus on resolving issues and learning from mistakes. Make the community larger. Collaboration instead of competition.

Everyone is coming from a different background, different challenges and different stories. We understand that people are capable of saying and doing things that are not intended. Despite these mistakes, we always understand to include them as part of a larger process. If you or any person is not capable of upholding TZM’s Code of Conduct at any given time, it is suggested to take a break and come back at a more convenient time to participate. If your completely unable to act within the Code of Conduct It is recommend you disassociate from the movement.
If any community environment fails to fulfill the standards of the Code of Conduct and countermeasures are not being taken then the community environment is to be aborted and will have no further association to TZM.
