As for sanctions that people are clamoring for:
A violation of the COE used to have consequences.
A conscious decision was made by Nick and Chris to change those consequences.
If, over the years, persons A, B, C and D are penalized for violating XYZ of the COE, fine. When person E makes the same violations, they should receive the same punishment.
The paradigm changed last year. Person E violates XYZ of the COE and no sanction is allotted. If that is the case, then you can’t now take Persons F,G, and H and re-implement the punishment that Persons A,B,C AND D received while at the same time allowing Person E to get away scott free.
Sanctions should be consistent. It is when they are not consistent that there should be complaints.
