Re-read the mailing list code of conduct and the revelant points for
myself that I have found are:

14 Do not use foul language; besides, some people receive the lists
via packet radio, where swearing is illegal.
16 Use common sense all the time.

The first 13 points talk about net-etiquette......

So for example to analyze this email [1]
It meets mailing list code of conduct but I would consider this email
a bit rude for a public mailing list.

BTW a lot of bug-reports get send to mailing list so this
code-of-conduct should be used when replying to bug-mail.

Doing this [2] google search on lists.debian.org domain kind of does
prove that most people know mailing list code of conduct only up to
point 14 (excluding).....

Now compare the message [1] to the one of the ubuntu code of conduct
reminders [3] this is the point I guess I'm trying to make. Shall I
file a wishlist bug against mailing-list virtual package w.r.t. code
of conduct?
