You are mistaken.  I am not defending Rick or Bart both of whom I am 
well aware are capable of speaking for themselves.

As I said in my first post, 
  "if you are going to have a CoC, it must be applied even-handedly."

As I said (not that I am comparing myself to Voltaire)

If you think the current balance should be changed, fine.

My point is simply that whatever balance is chosen, it should apply
to all participants equally.
