it specifically mentions the actions taken (warning → kick → ban),
including the possibility to appeal. it doesn’t use threatening language to
announce “repercussions” for project leaders. i think the way it’s written
is less aggressive and leaves more room for forgiveness.

for me, the CC sounds like immediate harsh punishment for even
ignorance-caused transgressions is a *possibility*. Like in a bank, if you
say the wrong word, the shutters go down, the sirens activate, and the
police is called. rust’s CoC sounds like it was written by and for people
you can talk to.

Thanks a lot!
