Exactly. I would actually have less of a problem with it if it were 
presented as moderation rules come down from on high. They still might 
be bad rules that I disagreed with (or not), but at least there would 
only be a problem if I broke a rule.

When the CoC actually purports to speak for me, then there's a problem 
even if no one ever invokes the CoC. I view the Contributor Covenant in 
particular as pushing identity politics on the free software world and 
manufacturing consent for that agenda. That's why the website proudly 
lists all the projects that agreed to it, and why they go push newer 
projects to adopt it.

I mean don't you think it's odd that the net effect of CoCs is to cause 
drama and divide communities, when they're supposed to be about 
welcoming everybody? Even if you can't understand why it shakes out like 
that, that alone should throw up red flags in your mind.
