Where exactly do you see anything that looks remotely like teeth in that? That 
they might call the cops if illegal things have happened? That they might warn 
you (i.e., say "bad boy, don't do that again")? To me that looks like utter 
nonsense. Everything is "may be", and besides calling the cops there is 
nothing LGM could do apart from what every thinking human would do anyway, 
that is approach both parties and try to find out what happened.

I am still not convinced that something like a CoC would give any benefit at 
all. And no, you don't know if I am privileged or not (that's not meant for 
you, Greg).
