    As a programmer that has sometimes contributed to the kernel but on rare occasion was pummeled for some stupid political reason (usually people trying to keep control of their tiny castles*), I can see at least some of these changes being welcome. However, in general I feel this is mostly more millennial dumbass SJW crap that is only making things worse.

    *This type of stuff will only hinder progress because it hands power to the "board" and trust me, these idiots have nothing to your benefit in mind. All they care about is maintaining their little "castle of power." These people are, or will become, "grumpy old men." These people care about nothing other than their own power and control. Those are never the people you want in charge of policy.

    The code of conduct is simply things we have tried before. The ARRL (ham radio) no longer represents the individuals. The AMA (Academy of Model Aerodynamics) no longer represents R/C pilots. Etc, etc... Rinse, repeat. It is the same thing over and over.

      That doesn't even have any meaning lol.
      it means "you are poor" or "you are rich" or "you are not poor but not quite rich either".

      I'm well-versed in SJW-speech because of reasons.

        Speaking of people that sound like grumpy old men who want to maintain their little castle of power...

          Do you know why such thing has been put into CoC. To protect poor from rich or the opposite to protect rich from poor?

          Joke aside, i think it is very dangerous to put such thing into this, as people always look everything from all sides. So, if something have no clear meaning it is better to be removed as soon as possible

            No, that's just the economic part. You're not as well-versed as you think. See post #8

              You're not wrong but a bit ad hominem. I have nothing to gain by attacking this. In fact, as I mentioned, I think it's OK to some degree.

              Also, to continue the theme. I assume you are under-30?

                  I failed. You are assimilated. Thanks

                    Did I say SJW-speak or "full complete definition"?

                    If a SJW is using that term they mean rich or poor, Borgeoise or proletariat.

                    The concept of "sociological combined total measure of a person's work experience " is too complex and not really necessary for most SJW operations.

                      SJWs are just an evolution of people that were enforicing "societal norms" for the sake of feeling good. Like shouting "whore" at girls that wore too short skirts or shit like that.

                      They can be of any age, as this behaviour is old as mankind itself.
