CoC opinion unrelated to discourse Show more
Without a good project structure with political will to stand up to bullying and discrimination, a CoC is worthless. I know it because I've experienced it. So the adoption of a CoC doesn't mean as much as people think, and sometimes it means nothing and the project is still a cesspit. It isn't a magic talisman. And it doesn't create diversity by itself. No document can do that. People have to.
On the other hand, not having one speaks for itself.
