Let's see, I've posted one email to this list describing the dangers
of abusing CoCs and one post to GitHub describing the motivations of
people who introduce CoCs, and immediately get banned on GitHub from 
Pharo citing this very CoC (which is apparently now already in force, 
and is already controlling the discussion of this particular CoC, am 
I allowed to call this stalinist or kafkaeske, or is this already 
covered by the blanket ban?).

I'm getting called a troll and a nobody in public by members of the project, 
incidentally thus violating the CoC twice, which is, of course, 
allowed by the liberal interpretation of what and who is considered abusive.

Thank you for instantly proving my points far better than I ever could.

I've resuscitated that GitHub account a couple years ago for work uses.
It will never see content published there since Microsoft purchased 
GitHub last year.

I've joined the pharo-users@ list a few days ago since I'm looking into
porting to Pharo OpenCroquet/OpenCobalt project which is being currently
resuscitated on Squeak. I commented on the CoC issue since I consider
project governance and their failures as very important.

I'm sorry, I don't seem to find a "recognized" anywhere in the CoC

Is this something you're going to include in later revisions of it, or is
this up to interpretation?

Let's see, my porting project is dead, but you've got an elevated 
conversation, and can be all respectful towards each other. 
One has to have priorities. 

All the best of luck to the Pharo community. You're going to need it.
