They want diversity, inclusiveness, but they act exclusively from
their viewpoint, for example that everybody must express themselvs
"nice" how they deem it fit. Yet planet Earth is full of diverse
people.  It is in relation to the Guix's code of conduct:

As contributors and maintainers of this project, and in the interest of
fostering an open and welcoming community, we pledge to respect all
people who contribute through reporting issues, posting feature
requests, updating documentation, submitting pull requests or patches,
and other activities.

We are committed to making participation in this project a
harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of level of
experience, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation,
disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age,
religion, or nationality.

Person come along and says: <gnutec>So for the good of the guix
system, do what I ask. Please!

and then gets bombarded with rejection until he disappears from IRC

He already said "Please", but IRC participants don't like the
imperative. I have no problem with imperative neither with
understanding that this guy had a problem and also good intentions.

He is told that he does not behave nice, etc. I cannot see enough
reasons to justify the rejection of that person.

It gives me impression that none of IRC participants truly think of
the code of conduct.

The actual problem has been demonstrated, the use of sexualized
language is just there. They never handle the problem.

What you again refer to is the biased decision making. They use it on
those who disagree, in general, when it is not one of them.

I am not.

I understand the irony, but no, I don't have. We speak of public
figures and their actions. Criticizing something is not hate. That is
why words are different.
