No I was talking to some folks who had unsubscribed at Linuxworld that
you are unaware of. The group DOES have some things to answer for...and
no I don't support the written code. Our mission is to expand linux
education and foster community etc etc...not score points in an
infantile e-fratparty. While I don't support the code of conduct...I
have no cause to oppose it so I will abstain myself rather than vote

I had a few conversations with such folks...I mentioned that I had had
such a conversation...
May I suggest you keep a bit more of an open mind? If enough people
perceive there is a problem including those who DON'T SUPPORT the code
of conduct, then that in itself is a problem. A number of people
including myself are a bit embarrassed at times to refer people to the
list. There is a problem. The question is the solution.
