oops - what I wanted to say about code of conduct: this is precisely why
I opposed a code of conduct in the QtCS discussion. A code of conduct
would pretty much lead to a situation where it doesn't matter if a
message is understood correctly - the one who wrote it is to blame by

Some people will misuse such a "My response is always right" free-pass
to silence every topic they don't like and (in the long run) that would
lead to a situation where you will respond to mails/bugreports/... only
with AutoText.
