1. Don’t be an asshole.
That’s it! Other than that, we don’t really have any rules. The only thing we require is that you treat other people with as much kindness and respect as possible. Everything else is up to you. We have a lot of suggestions and ideas and the like, but nothing is set in stone other than “don’t be an asshole.” That is non-negotiable. Some people say “Hey, but Walter is an asshole sometimes and he gets things done.” Yes, but this isn’t Walterism. And in fact, in the long run, most of his aggressions help no one.
Don’t be an asshole.
Welp, that about wraps ‘er up.
NOTE: Our Facebook groups have lots of rules. But our Facebook groups are not Dudeism. Organizational rules and ethical rules fall into different categories.
