Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.



Pick an apple! 

The purpose of the public SlackBITS group (if you're not already a member, join here) is to provide a public discussion forum for members of the TidBITS and Take Control communities to ask questions, help one another, and converse about issues relating to Apple, Apple products, and products and services relevant to Apple users. In particular, SlackBITS is meant to complement and support a pair of books by Glenn Fleishman, Take Control of Slack Basics and Take Control of Slack Admin.

Everyone is welcome in SlackBITS, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, race, religion, or anything else—so long as they follow this code of conduct.

Considerate, respectful behavior is expected from all participants. All communications should be appropriate for a professional audience that includes people of many different backgrounds. Be kind and polite, and do not insult or put down other members. When in doubt, ask yourself if your contribution is both constructive and substantive.

The following types of behavior are unacceptable:

  • Harassment, bullying, threats, and insults
  • Sexual language and imagery
  • Sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes
  • Excessive swearing
  • Anything else the organizers feel is inappropriate

If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the organizers may take any action they deem suitable, including warning the offender or expulsion from the group.

Thank you for helping to make this a welcoming, friendly, useful group for all!
