Not on Debian mailing lists:

He is someone who has read
http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct in the past and wanted
to remind you of it.

Which is why they may need to be reminded of
http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct under certain
circumstances :-)

According to http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct I should
have trimmed irrelevant parts from my reply, hence this paragraph and
the one above it should not have been included. But I wouldn't want to
miss an opportunity to reference
http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct .

P.S. The mailing list code of conduct could be found at
http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct . Not sure if I've
mentioned that already.
