I am very curious. Why is it that there seems to be so much resistance to this draft code of conduct? This document closely parallels both the WMF friendly space policy and similar policies in the broader tech/developer community. It is also not that far from policies that exist on many Wikimedia projects, with the possible exception of having a better delineated path of reporting of problem behaviour, and a stronger expectation of having problem behaviour addressed. Do people have a problem with the document itself, or just the process of its development?
If, for example, the communities of Polish Wikipedia and Polish Wikisource got together with Wikimedia Poland and they jointly developed a similar policy to apply in those projects and in events relating to those projects and organizations, would people from other projects be upset because (in the rare event that they might edit Polish Wikipedia or attend a Wikimedia Poland event) those expectations would be applied to them? Would we, as a broader community, think that it would be okay to (attempt to) block those closely related projects/organizations from developing such a policy? This is a genuine question; I'm having a hard time sorting out some of the comments that have been made in this thread.
