I like the proposed "code of conduct" for Progressive Bloggers. Werner Patels would be kicked out/not allowed back on, and that would be fine by me.
However, it is important when writing a code, to avoid all typos. I'm pretty sure the author meant "ethnically offensive" and not "ethically offensive".
Ethnically offensive would be, for example, Acadiens are a bunch of..., fill in blank.
Ethically offensive would be, for example, saying that it is ok to steal food from hungry children when you have plenty of food yourself.
