We need Fedora to be a place where people can participate and
contribute without fear. The Code of Conduct isn't a tool for
bludgeoning people into compliance. It's a basic part of the social

it, that's certainly your right. I'm not interested in forcing anyone.
But those who can't agree can't be Fedora Project members or
