I believe so, but I can't summon the will to search for it.

Being presented with the community's code of conduct is not a punishment for bad 
behavior. Newcomers are the *primary* audience for the code of conduct. I'm old 
enough to remember moderated listservs (as was the fashion at the time) that 
would automatically reply to each new poster with the listserv's charter and 
expected rules of netiquette (which is what we called it in those halcyon days).
