That cuts both ways. I have in the past posted in my facebook account
articles from the onion that some people would consider offensive. If
you don't like it, don't read the onion or be friends with me on

I have been working on llvm since 2006 and according to the code of
conduct I would now be liable to being banned from working on llvm
because of sharing a satirical news.

Again, I don't doubt the good intentions of the people working on
this, but as written this is one of the most terrifying documents I
have seen.
