I once proposed the following code of conduct for WebID

http://lists.foaf-project.org/pipermail/foaf-protocols/2010-October/004057.html

If there's one thing I've learnt over the last few years, it's that
the Web is about tolerance.

IMHO it's the measure of your magnitude as a person, group or
ecosystem, what and how much you can tolerate, and channel towards
positive ends.

I have noticed that discussions at time have got heated, but that's a
good sign, it shows people are passionate about the technology.  I
hope as we transitions to the more informal CG that people can make an
effort to be more inclusive, courteous and thoughtful. :)
