      I think it has to do with using inappropriate metaphors to help thrust forward one's argumentative position and to help penetrate people's perception more deeply, particularly when hard truths need to be conveyed.

      It means you're not allowed to make "fork" and "dongle" innuendoes or utter any similar form of political incorrectness, lest you offend the delicate little feelings of some hypersensitive feminist.

    Is saying "Time's up, let's do this!" and then charging blindly into the Rookery still okay?

    I'm, uh, asking for a friend.

    “other unethical or unprofessional conduct”

    Any law that appends a carte-blanche "or anything else that at some point we might find annoying" is the tool of a tyrant, not of a lawful democracy.

      I think it's to cover unexpected events. Because there are some jerks* who are inventive in their jerkness. Not neccesarily deliberately so,just due to them being jerks.

    Let's impose a political litmus test before people can do their jobs...

    See "opal gate" for how this works.

    If you don't mouth the SJW Catechism to the satisfaction of the Political Officer then your options for professional development are to be severely constrained. It's unlawful for employers to do this in the EU.

    But Open Source has become important, therefore Open Source becomes a power base, therefore Open Source will be colonised by party apparatchiks..

      From the last link, one commentator says "..a monster contributor who is making multiple near daily commits to various opensource projects."

      Because the end justifies the means. I'm sure I've heard that one before somewhere.

        If that's the kind of world you want to live in, the worst I wish you is that you should do so.
