Maybe such a code of conduct is needed, I don't dwell too much on the

moderate and help the mailing list in question to remain polite and
helpful. In this sense, I would trust a few people more than I would
trust a code of conduct. As you do spend much more time  on the Users
mailing list than me, do you think you need such a code, or do you need
more people to help out users (in a polite tone, of course)?

The problem is enforcement.  

I dont see much point in this:
- There are few to no sanctions available to us for enforcement against offenders
- I havent see too much discussion or conflict about what is an offense -- so
  lets not bind ourselves to rules when we dont need any
- For nontrivial cases we already have such a code of conduct embedded in the
  statues of the TDF with its requirements for members and their conduct. And
  there we also have a valid sanction against serious offenders if needed.
