I have two responses to this.  Firstly, that page does not explicitly
define the Code of Conduct as a "policy" or as "guidelines".  The
sentence you quoted is ambiguous about the authorship of the Code of

Secondly, even if the Code of Conduct is defined by the FSF, that does
not imply that the Code of Conduct is intended to enforce FSF doctrine.
Indeed, I would expect the FSF to be permissive about the views that are
expressed on the LibrePlanet wiki because the wiki is intended to widen
the arena in which free software is advocated, not restrict it.
