My feeling here is that all the things that have been discussed about 
the CoC are a consequence of Carl's behaviour on the ML.
I can understand (I think) your feelings, but this is still problematic 
to me as a rule of thumb. It does not seem fair to decide on a CoC 
because of certain facts and then rule on those very facts on the charge 
that they fail to follow the rules that they have led to create.
In addition to this, I really feel that 4 months is way too long for a 
ban, as in "forever".

In short, I feel that this is unfair and too long a period, though I can 
understand your feelings on this.
