Like telling in public to someone that he's your new X ?

I agree with you, but I fail to see how Josselin is worse. Yes he does bad 
jokes and sometimes some remarks can probably be taken personaly, but I don't 
think he ever called for killing someone, even ironically (for what it means 
to be ironic about murder).

There's a general track on being too rude, but I don't think you can blame a 
single guy for that. 

I won't spoil this thread anymore, but making things like this personal really 
makes me sad. Problems of a group are usually solved by the group as a whole, 
not by throwing out a designated culprit. We did before, and some of you 
might have noticed that this was not a solution to the issue.

The initial proposition of this thread was this idea of code of conduct..  I 
don't like it either. If you believe someone is being too rude, why don't you 
simply tell it to him, in public or in private ?

Using a code of conduct puts more bureaucracy whereas everyone knows 
that email communication (and similar) tend to create anger just because you 
don't get the implicit message, tone, irony and etc... There's no need for a 
code, only some more communication between us.

And if the jokes don't make you laugh, just ignore them.
