This kind of kicks off a discussion about what goes in a Code of Conduct.

Who is the Code of Conduct for? For projects like this maintained by an individual, is it just a testament to the vanity of the maintainer? Is he trying to attract a certain kind of contributor or build a certain kind of community? Is he trying to discourage certain kinds of contributors?

This feels needlessly political and polarizing, and that it creates more of a divide than a welcoming or inclusive feeling. I, for one, don’t feel encouraged to contribute or frankly even use the product any more.

It’s also in stark contrast to the work we just did over at tilde.town on making our Code of Conduct and Etiquette Guide more up to date and fair.
