Sorry, I have this problem of being pretty verbose :/ it’s not intentional, 
and on many places I indeed just resort to shut up (because otherwise I’m not 
welcome anymore).

Not this but “harassment-free”

Because harassment is often associated with sexism, and a policy to be 
enforced need some action, as you state after:

The subject contains a question mark, and I already previously spoke against 
the very concept of a “GNU social contract”.  I preferred not repeating myself 
but as this may have been done to a different sub-thread I’m coming to think 
Dora was right and with such lengthy discussions repetition unfortunately 
becomes necessary…
