I know I'm an exception, but the mere existence of that

+1 to this (and the rest of Taylan's message; I think +1s are lame but

That Debian CoC is conspicuous in both its vagueness and how it avoids
talking about structural issues. This sends a clear political message,
whether one likes it or not.

Unfortunately, ‘be excellent to each other’ is not a CoC, and it's
often an excuse not to have one.
