I have not been aware of those rules. I have only been aware of the code
of conduct linked on the list signup page which I used. And had you not
provided that link, I would never have come across it either, since I
would not have known to look for one (since I have already read and
accepted one set of rules).

So, I apologize to you for not having known these rules. But may I also
suggest that the list rules are linked on the list signup page so that
they are actually found and read.
