Re: Code of Conduct
I quite like this view. There has been some good feedback in this thread
and other places already.
To some extent the description in your second paragraph is happening
here already in another part of the thread.

There was actually only one part of this that seems like it is on the
money and that was code of conduct means moderation isn't required. But
that's just the surface impression. It is a simple observation that
comes from not understanding what the code of conduct means and it
assumes that moderation must be done centrally.
A code of conduct requires each and every member of the group (be it
companies, doctors, football teams or mailing lists) to perform
moderation themselves for themselves. A code of conduct is in effect
distributed moderation. Responsibilities are thus not circumvented, they
are distributed. In the case of this mailing list, it means every member
of the mailing list is responsible for moderating the content that they
supply in accordance with the guidelines from the blog post.--
