Re: On the Code of Conduct


But the point of a CoC is that there's some sort of standard for all
participants to follow. Also, so that people who are unsure of whether they
want to participate can see what the community values and will allow/not

Also, completely off topic:You write in a pretty frustrating (imo) pedantic
way that doesn't help get your point across. I'd appreciate it if you
didn't do that.
