I probably am not the only one here who do not understand why you bring 
up a CoC for real world events in this discussion.

The only power whoever enforces the CoC here has is to ban you from the 
mailing list/issue tracker. Therefore it can only make rules about user 
content. So yes it is all about verbal abuse, flame wars and spam.
