This seems to be mostly an issue in the USA or at least it isn't an 
issue in Europe. I've been to several conferences in Europe and I 
haven't ever heard of any issues concerning something like that and also 
I haven't heard of any code of conduct.
I've heard there have been issues at conferences in the US. A code of 
conduct might help, but we shouldn't advertise it too offensive.
It is okay if we have it and we can refer to it, but we shouldn't put it 
on every door in 30pt or something like that. I think it would be 
somewhat offending to advertise it in that way, because for me it 
implies that you think I don't know how to behave properly.

We *should* have clear guidelines and I'm glad to call them code of 
conduct and we definitely should evict people who misbehave, but don't 
put it on every wall
