We are not a government or political entity so "facist" might be the wrong word here. But I think I understand the general direction you are taking. And some can absolutely be used that way.

The intention is not to kick people we don't like or agree with. If you have ever seen a real-life discussion on implementing MariaDB Server feature you'll see many disagreements.

Instead the intention is to discourage people from personal attacks at each other, which negatively affects the group as a whole.

As mentioned in the blog post, if you have suggestions on ideas to make this better, please feel free to comment with them.
