I know, but recently (some days ago as you can see) it was stated that a 
CoC would be desirable, and afaik the covenant CoC is a pretty standard 
and widespread one, so it is interesting to criticize it before it is 
considered more widely (especially as this very CoC’s faq ask not to 
criticize it, when you’re victim of it, so you have to do it at other 

Also I was commenting on the fact supporters of CoC don’t even abide by 
them.  So it is likely they’re subjective enough not to realize they just 
want to impose more burden to people they disagree with, without added 
burden on them (in other words: they just want more enforcement power, CoC 
serving as a justification for it).
