+1 here, from another country which transitioned from 45 years of harsh
totalitarian rule, through a brief period of relative freedom, to a more
subtle form of a (thought) police superstate we happily live in today.

Rest assured your worries about FreeBSD CoC enforcers are unfounded,
though.  Namely, last year several developers, including the one who is
now being "investigated", orchestrated a lengthy rant on an internal ML
targeting a population group based on race, sex, and sexual
inclination, while invoking on EU convention on human rights protecting
their right to do so.  Neither the CoC comitte nor the Core team found
that disturbing, probably as true believers to freedom of thought and
speech.  So, assuming they stick to their principles, I don't see why
would they intervene now, particularly given that the developer has
expressed his opinions outside of the project's MLs or other forums.
