 We think our rules are not too hard. If you have comments, contact us.
+ at section Code of conduct
+Respect other people, treat others the way you yourself want to be treated.
+Be tolerant to differences in oppinion, people often have different priorities
+and may see a problem from a different viewpoint.
+Do not assume mallice for things that can be attributed to incompetence. Even if
+it is mallice its rarely good to start with that as initial assumtation.
+Act friendly towards others and about 3rd parties.
+Be friendly when someone once has a bad day or is angry and acts unfriendly.
+Everyone has a bad day once in a while.
+If you yourself have a bad day or are angry then try to take a break and reply
+once you are calm and without anger if you have to.
+Help other teammembers if you can instead of trying to personally gain from not helping.
+The goal of Software development is to create technical excellence, not for any
+individual to be better and "win" against the others. Large software projects
+are only possible and successfull through teamwork.
+Or maybe all that can be condensed into Bill and Teds words
+"Be excellent to each other."
