The so - called "amateur code" is not the law, nor is it enforceable.
I never said that it was.
It is a guideline for how amateur radio operators should
behave, with a view toward not causing each other unnecessary grief/hardship and not engaging in what is still generally considered to be poor behavior IRL as well as on-air.
(Beyond that, isn't abiding by it a term of membership in the ARRL? I won't name names, but when I think of various poor operators, quite a few of them have an Email address that ends in @arrl.org.)
It probably wasn't conceived with a view towards those people who are of such weak genetic stuff that they can find a way to be offended by such innocuous comments as, "Nice weather we're having, eh?", but with a view toward that majority of people who still, even in this day and age, understand what it means to conduct oneself as a gentleman.
Gentlemen can disagree on a subject without resorting to ad hominem attacks, defamation, creating their own versions of "The Dirty" and whatnot; they don't need an amateurs' code. It's those people described by Commission enforcement officials as, "a bunch of 5-year olds" who are more immature than kindergarteners that, despite being middle-aged (and older) men, need to be told how to behave the way most of us learned when we were, well... 5-year olds.
