 Not at all, but I have seen such behavior every now and then,
especially when discussion about Enrico's community guidelines popped
up, people harshly defended their right for "free speach", so to say,
and it wasn't the only occation (have received quite some hateful
messages over time for my wish to have a better discussion style within
the project).

 But this is also part of:

 ... the CoC being ignored.  In so many ways, both by people actively
ignoring it, and no real actions about "rule breakers" (unless they
crossed the line for next to everyone over a long period of time
already, which is, IMNSHO, way too late).

 So how do you envision an overhaul of the CoC could work to not be
ignored just again?  As a reference for those who are uncertain what we
are talking about, I guess you mean the same as me, these rules:

 So indeed, like Stefano mentioned, a "sorry, was wound up", "was wrong
in my judgement" from the people who are misbehaving would help a lot to
get things into better shape, but those are still the few exceptions,

 Thanks for the answers,
