My views on this are already well known:

It seems like the issue isn't making people promise to be nice, it's
what happens when they aren't. And once again the board has taken the
easy way out, by not being judgemental about reported behaviour.

In this case, I'd like to see the board clearly come out & say "we don't
have a problem with this", or "we have a problem with this" (while
saying what "this" is), instead of having a wishy-washy solution. Mostly
I agree with Emmanuele & Jason on this.
