This is the wrong question.  I would argue the second question is not even appropriate under the Code of Conduct.

The Code of Conduct exists because Ubuntu is not just for those with unchecked privileges.  Acceptable and unacceptable
conduct must be explicit and clear, and the processes and procedures for addressing violation need to be explicit and clear.

This is something that should probably be addressed publicly at the next UOS after a new draft of the CoC has been
prepared by the Communiy Council.
