[Hpr] Harassment on HPR

I'm concerned that a CoC will open up HPR to the kind of legal action
that would destroy it. A CoC is a contract explicit and implied. Once
it's out there, expect the lawyers to begin circling waiting to feed on
HPR's impending demise.

If someone is making Ad Hominem attacks towards you, that feels
horrible. Believe me I know, I've been there. I also learned that a
policy change changes nothing, but the scenario and style of bullying.
That's exactly what will happen with a CoC. Trolls don't care about those.

Ignoring them is a good first step, if that doesn't work or violence or
extortion is involved, give one warning. If that fails, respond with a
spirited and irresistible defense. If you feel unequipped to do so, I'm
certain there are enough 'good at computer' people who can help right here.

Pull some e-mail headers and IP addresses, and we shall drive your
enemies from the interwebs to the lamentations of their women and
children. Then they will think twice or perhaps thrice before going
somewhere else to stir up trouble. AND you will never be bullied again.

Well, I'm off to polish my internet weapons, Have a great day :)
