Well, I should have known that Matthews post was going to be about harassment. (Does he talk about anything else these days?)

My comment was more about technical communities using the CoC to insulate themselves from anyone and anything that might pierce the bubble or echo-chamber they are living in. I am not going to point out specific incidents, but it is not that hard to recognize the pattern when being involved in these communities. It usually involves people priding themselves being experts or good-doers feeling threatened when someone (usually an outsider) might point out inconsistencies between the story and the reality. Resulting in these community members engaging in behavior ten times worse than what they condemn in others, only now it is justified.
