How should we define Community Safety? What role does the platform/service need to own versus the community engaged on the service? In order to scale there must be a blended model across services and community members to ensure safe and inclusive experiences for everyone.


Community Safety is a journey and there is not an end state. We should continue to have a blended model which includes the platform/service and the community as responsible for safety.
