Community Guidelines

Why have community guidelines?

Our goal is to create and maintain a welcoming and professional space at SASE. SASE offers a venue for peer-to-peer support, networking, exploration of ideas, and healthy debate. To safeguard these values, we’ve created the following community guidelines.

SASE members should be respectful and courteous to each other in all interactions, including our online community, and in-person events. This is a place to exchange ideas, not hostilities.

Unacceptable behavior

The following are violations of our community guidelines.

  • Harassment—generalized or specific discriminatory behavior –including offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion, as well as sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual or romantic attention.
  • Threats—threatening someone physically or verbally in any space, online or in-person.
  • Posting of copyrighted material–including (but not limited to) print, audio, video, computer software.
  • Revealing personal information—of any SASE member without their explicit consent


SASE members are held to the above guidelines in both online interactions and in-person events.

SASE moderators, facilitators and event hosts will use their best discretion when enforcing the above guidelines. Our intent is not to be heavy handed, but to enable all to participate in a positive and enriching experience.


If you experience or witness a violation of our community guidelines, please report it to a SASE Moderator. All communication in this regard will be treated as confidential.
