2014/Civilizing IRC and forums: moderation strategies for mutual respect
As a project’s public IRC channel or forum grows, it’s hard to keep it friendly.

This isn’t great for retaining community members or welcoming new ones. I’ll share my strategies for dealing with problems, learned at the scale of hundreds of forum threads, tens of thousands of forum visitors, and dozens of IRC chatters every day.
