[erlang-questions] Announcing Erlang.org Code of Conduct

In an attempt to kill the 74 line length nonsense I give you a bunch of
lines that are all 74 characters long. I have ordered the lines by length
:) In relative terms the longest line, the 'W's is four times longer than
the shortest, the 'l's.

If course if you are one of those very few people that only use mutt or
only use monospaced fonts to read their mail the lines will look all the
same. In which case a the 74 character limit might seem reasonable. If the
lines do not seem to be to be descending in length then you are probably
using a different font than me (something else to reflect on).

Is it the Erlang communities way of being "welcoming and inclusive" to ram
this down everyones throat for the sake of someone who wants to read
everything in mutt?
