	So - the way I read the code of conduct is: "Be polite !" - and though
in general I dislike rules, it seems fairly hard to argue against that
sort of thing.

	I like the requirement to ask new members to agree with the code, and
there should be no need for signing [ of course ], or is putting your
name in a wiki list signing these days ? ;-)

	Having said all that, I personally feel the planet should be a place
where people can be themselves; and if people fundamentally find -me-
offensive, I hope they can at least tolerate my burblings, and skip my
commentary on the delicate flavour of stewed toejam - or whatever ;-)
rather than having some two-dimensionally bland, political correct view
of the people working on the project.

	Either way, it seems a sensible idea to me.
