in reply to Development of the Perl Monks Code of Conduct

Just some rough thoughts: I realize that not everyone would agree with the above sentiments, but I thought they could be a nice first shot.

Notice that I didn't include anything about discriminatory speech based on gender, race, religion, ethinicity, yada, yada, yada. While I like the thought of including that, how do we word it? I don't think censorship is necessarily an issue as vroom can do with the site as he sees fit, but some of the poetry out there clearly passes the line. When is it art and when is it discrimination?

Frankly, from what I've seen in the monastery, I don't feel that this is much of a problem, but the issue should at least be discussed.


Update: I forgot one very important point: What do we do if we have a repeat offender? Ban them? Well, we can't. Dock their XP? Some might not care. Ban their nick? Some might be attached to their nick, some might not. Ignore it?
