The attacks that "Joseph McCarthy" has been launching on the core 
developers for the last 15 months are in my view now perfectly 
acceptable.  This is excellent news.  Everybody can now say what they 
like about the core developers and there's no comeback.

You can also stuff the code of conduct, it's quite clearly only brought 
into play when it suits.  Never, ever aim it at somebody who goes out of 
their way to stir things up, always target it at the people who fight 

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask 
what you can do for our language.
