Eh, they do and that is one of the reasons to oppose the
Code of Conduct.  Its draft implicitly alleges that the
technical spaces currently are a cesspit that is in urgent
need of someone with a rake while protecting actual offend-

It also turns the technical spaces from a place that served
to advance Wikimedia's mission into an aimless "community".
