Are there specific instances of behavior you think was unjustly

It should be pointed out that of course I'm not rhetorically
bludgeoning Linus (even if that was what I intended, which it isn't)
because he's not reading any of this.
For the record, I am not accusing you of this, and specifically didn't
name anyone having done so because I didn't think it was productive or
relevant. (People will always appeal to something desirable yet
unprovable to bolster their argument, whether it's the CoC, or
democratic ideals, or human rights, or the form of the good; since
someone could attempt to tie any concept to an argument with which
someone else disagrees, fear that a particular concept could be used
that way is not a useful reason to discard the concept.) The larger
question was whether anyone can point to an example of the CoC being
misused in a way that they think actually caused the project to sanction
someone unjustly--and the answer seems to be, "no".
