The real question becomes, is who is an idiot?

There are certainly people who are trouble, but how long until a policy
such as this just turns into a witch hunt?

You don't like someone?  Great, just bait them into breaking the policy
and get them kicked out!

If you don't like a thread, just ignore it.  That's a lot less work than
creating an overly elaborate code of conduct nobody is really going to
follow anyway.

I compare this to talking to a boring person at a party.  Are you going to
stand there and complain how boring they are, or go find someone more
interesting to talk to?
