Re the Social Contract I'm sure greater minds than mine have looked at
it but I feel obliged to make some sort of response of which the next paragraph is the only
Given the two options "I endorse" or "I do not adhere to" may I be bold as to choose
the third option, i.e. no thanks, not interested, neither answer is acceptable to me.
Please be so kind as to record that somewhere and if you make any public lists of
responses it would be nice to put that in.
The following issues lead me to the above:
1. I understand from an email from RMS that he is not entirely supportive. Happy to be corrected.
2. In general peoples behaviour tends to be fairly good, in my experience or there is a reason behind
it, either way I'm inclined to leave it as is. [e.g. I've never seen any bias against people on the
basis of sexual orientation, ... from the workers, the managers yes]
3. The gnu.tools CoC looks fundamentally flawed with the usual "Any other conduct... clause.."
And the language for the options whilst probably correct in some sense seems odd since
option 2 results in:
'I do not adhere to the policy of providing a harrasment free environment to all people"
That doesn't entirely seem to be a safe response in this current world.
