Admin's Note, Please Read #adminnotice
In the last in-process blog post by NVAccess, they linked to the NVAccess Code of Conduct. For reference, that link is https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/blob/master/CODE_OF_CONDUCT.MD
Moving forward, in addition to the existing list policy, this code of conduct will also apply to anyone wishing to participate in this community.
I will be asking Brian to update the list rules with content from the NVAccess Code of Conduct. If you have a grievance against an individual whom you believe to have violated the code of conduct as a result of an interaction resulting from membership on this list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate, and address it promptly and confidentially. Please note that the code of conduct will apply to this list and all subgroups as well.

The group Welcome and Monthly Reminder messages have been update to include the following very near to the beginning of each:
In addition to the NVDA Group Specific rules which follow, all members are expected to adhere to the NVAccess Citizen and Contributor Code of Conduct. This is for the main NVDA Group and all subgroups. If you have a grievance against an individual whom you believe to have violated the code of conduct during any interaction on this group, please e-mail us at email@example.com
Not that I think we're going to have any issues related to this, but I will re-emphasize the "during any interaction on this group" aspect. If it's in public, or even in private but directly linked to a private response to a message on the group, that's within group administration's purview to handle. If it's got its origin outside that scope, it's not.
And the kinds of disagreements that are characteristic of adults in general, and that could occasionally occur in "polite company" in real life, do not fall under the Code of Conduct. It needs to be serious before administrative intervention is called for.
