I had this short exchange with two other users:
@HighRepUser The new code of conduct simply asks that we keep a friendly tone as we point out the flaws in a post. Nobody should have trouble doing that. – Rainbolt 1 hour ago
@Rainbolt Nobody should have trouble posting a comment that is widely considered appropriate, reasonable, professional, and not at all rude by the community at large. Basically no one is capable of writing a comment that a mod will consider friendly enough to not delete (especially if it's in any way pointing out a flaw in anything), given the standards they hold comments to. – User 1 hour ago
@Rainbolt Unfortunately... reality doesn't work that way. – OtherUser 11 mins ago
I read the new Code of Conduct again. As far as I can tell, helping others see their mistakes is totally fine. On the contrary, I have an 80k+ and a 200k+ reputation user saying that it won't be allowed by the moderators. Are they being dramatic, or am I really not supposed to comment when someone gets it wrong?
I understand that many stacks have their own additional rules that go above and beyond the code of conduct, but what I really want to know is the network wide policy.
