A tldr one-liner of the contributor covenant that often appears in the codes of conduct of online communities is, “Don’t be TRAASH.”

Don’t be TRAASH (transphobic, racist, ableist, abusive, sexist, homophobic).

Another good one-liner: “No proselytizing.” Consult this article and infographic from Chrissy Stroop on anti-proselytizing principles.

Anti-Proselytizing Principles
Embracing Pluralism Is Good Citizenship

Don’t be TRAASH.
No proselytizing.

Those 5 words distill the minimum requirements to maintaining inclusive spaces.

“Everything is politics”, but the code of conduct is not about an advance of progressive/left-wing politics. It’s about establishing a minimal level of civil and professional collaboration. Civil, non-discriminatory, and professional behavior should be a baseline and shared value held by people of all ideologies, regardless of political affiliation (with the obvious exception of hate groups).
