I view discussion CoC to be a light diversion from discussing programming
problems. A form of relaxation.

Hearing my learned colleagues point of view on such matters is enlightening.

If I had one rule it wouldn't be "be nice" it would be "try not to be
boring" - but niceness and
boringness are in the eye of the beholder ...
