> @mimir, just so you know, just because we have a CoC, it doesn't mean that we will divide everybody. The CoC we have picked **did not** contain anything about one's backgroud. If one does not want to talk about their backgroud, they are free to do so. We have other things to focus, such as the movement, the projects, etc., not one's background. Thanks, I know that this is not a big concern here. If you want to implement this CoC, I am fine with it. I do not really care very much about such things, the main focus should be the Degoogling.

@TheMainOne I do not really like the CoC for the same reasons I opposed it when it was implemented by Linux. I think it does not solve the everyday issues in FOSS-projects, where you need to set some rules to have nice conversations and keep the project clean from non-project-related or political discussions. The CoC does not differentiate between the specific project and the backgrounds and personal activities of its contributors. In my opinion it fails to support the classical spirit in FOSS-development, that you should be measured by the quality of your code and not your personal background. The CoCs new mixing does miss the cause of working together, because it proposes the implementation of powerful tools for the Admins, while the rules when these tools take effect are not clearly defined and can be interpreted very broadly. I think the basic rules we have on Forums and Imageboards since the 90s, like no politics, no personal attacks and doxxing, do suffice. The goal is simply to focus on the project to achieve the goal of DeGoogling FOSS together, and make it easy and attractive for newcomers to help. :-)
