PSF isn't enforcing laws.

It's just setting a basic standard of behavior - be nice, don't be a jerk, don't harass people based on their personal characteristics.

And on the flip side, it's saying to people who otherwise might be reluctant to participate, thinking they would face prejudice, "hey, we got your back, prejudice against you is not allowed here".

Seems pretty innocuous.
