I agree: we should exclude the notion of "non-endorsing member".
You really don't want people who don't endorse. That's one of our
main points here: to offer a healthy environment.
To give examples of what happens when you don't have norms in
here are articles from gnu.misc.discuss (and they scrubbed the worse
-- sometimes you only see it quoted):
or in the private gnu lists (no links to archives available, and I
won't forward any literal text since it is a private list) the
naming of specific people for backstabber awards.
We want our projects and lists to have a code of conduct and the
ability to remove toxic immature trolling when it becomes a problem.
I do agree. And I know you mean well by showing some of the worst
things going on. But I wish you hadn't pointed to one of the active
doxxing campaigns going on, please don't amplify them.
