[Pharo-users] Code of Conduct

I really liked the way the conversation was advancing on the PR before
it was used to insult one of the members of the community. I don't know
if closing the whole thread on the PR is only the way to keep the trolls
out of it, because it also keeps everyone who is trying to make a good
contribution from civilized conversation. There is another way on GitHub
to only keep trolls out while making the conversation available for the
ones willing to build from it?
