People aren't free to say anything they want in any manner that they want within GNOME (servers, community events, etc). On LWN site they do unfortunately. In GNOME, they are not.

In GNOME we try to be respectful towards others opinions. A Code of Conduct is not meant for nitpicking and checking if some rule was really broken or not. One of the intentions is that people can have hugely different opinions yet still discuss this. This without for instance resulting in things like exaggerating.

Blujay for instance already said he exaggerated on purpose. IMO he(?) distorted what the people behind this outreach program are trying to do and what the intention is behind this program.

If someones intention is to object to something and not display any behaviour that might result in any change: ok, so be it. But then I prefer if the person just keeps silent, because I'm not interested in venting.

If you want to have some reasonable discussion, it does NOT help at all if you do not show some understanding that purposely exaggerating what other people are doing is NOT helpful at all. I don't expect anything positive to come out of such behaviour (purposely making things more emotional).

"banning", or checking against some list of rules and if they maybe were broken or are also IMO distracting.
