Canonical responds to 'abusive' Ubuntu posts

Filed under
Ubuntu

Administrators overseeing Ubuntu mailing lists are taking steps to thwart and apparent rash of un-Ubuntu-like behavior.

Canonical is investigating what has been reported as "abuse" and "intimidation" of unnamed members of the Ubuntu community email lists. The investigation will produce a set of guidelines that will help decide when to escalate future posts of a similar nature for action to Ubuntu's overall governing board, the community council.

Ubuntu community manager Jono Bacon promised the outcome would not establish a system that censors the thousands of people participating in Ubuntu's more than 300 email lists.

"I don't want to censor people and come up with ideas that make it a very restrictive environment, but want to make sure there's an acceptable level of behavior," Bacon told The Reg.

"The most important thing is to identify the most important means of dealing with this issue and make the Ubuntu community do great work together."
