Well if they do not conduct themselves in a manner befitting of an adult and professional then just sanction them eg. warnings, kicks, bans,....

No need for a CoC.

If one person thinks something is fine and someone else thinks it isn't you get disagreements and arguments based on misunderstandings and assumptions.

IMO outlining what is "professional" and what isn't in a CoC solves that issue.

You get those anyway. Also empirically speaking, having a CoC to try and spell out "professional" behavior seems to make things worse. It's not a solution at all.

That sounds like a code of conduct...


The lack of self-awareness in this comment is truly staggering.
