I have to ask this: Do you honestly believe that the poisonous people we
have in our community don't understand that what they are doing is
harmful? Are we to believe that they've never been in common human
society before, that fedora was their first introduction to
working/interacting with others?

I'm sorry, I don't think that's the case, they are not 'babes in the
woods'. They are toxic and a CoC is not gonna cut it, IMO.
