Stack Overflow: Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct helps us build a community that is rooted in kindness, collaboration, and mutual respect.

Unacceptable Behavior

No subtle put-downs or unfriendly language.Even if you don’t intend it, this can have a negative impact on others.

“You could Google this in 5 seconds.”
“This is called Invariance and Covariance. If you Google it, you’ll find tutorials that can explain it much better than we can in an answer here.”
“If you bothered to read my question, you’d know it’s not a duplicate.”
“I don’t think this is a duplicate. My question is about cement board, while the question you linked is about drywall.”
“Are you speaking English? If so, I can’t tell.”
“I’m having trouble understanding your question. I think you’re asking how to add a swap after system installation. Is that correct?”
“I came to get help, not to get my question edited.”
“Thanks for trying to help, but your edit isn’t what I meant. I’ve removed your edit, and have updated my question so it’s clearer.”

No name-calling or personal attacks.Focus on the content, not the person. This includes terms that feel personal even when they’re applied to content (e.g. “lazy”).
