Points of view will differ. Last I heard, there was a debate over
whether it was appropriate or not to even have a CoC. Now it already
exists, and is very obviously written by SJWs.

I haven't seen many posts about this, maybe you mean in the secret
mailing list?

It is a simple yes or no question, did money donated to the foundation
pay these people to write this trash? I am not the first nor only one to
ask. There is nothing to misconstrue or dance around. I cannot find this
information on the site.

But you had time and motivation to respond to mine... To say I am wrong
and that I do not deserve a response to my question, because everyone is
tired of defending themselves after dumping on the community for the
benefit of some activists.
