But even if such rules existed, compliance with them would be entirely 
voluntary. The board only has the power that the Squeak community 
voluntarily assigns to them. Speaking hypothetically, an asshole could 
for example set up a blog named thesqueakboard.wordpress.com and there 
is nothing we could do about it, except from completely ignoring it.

I suggest that we do just that and stop feeding the troll.
