Even in the places where I don't agree with the discussion about what
our code of conduct should be, I love that we're having it. Removing
the enforcement clause basically goes back to the way things were. We'd
be recognizing that we know issues happen, and explicitly stating that
when serious events do happen, the community as a whole isn't committing
to helping.

It's true there are a lot of questions about how the community resolves
problems and holds each other accountable for maintaining any code of
conduct. I think the enforcement section leaves us the room we need to
continue discussions and still make it clear that we're making an effort
to shift away from the harsh discussions in the past.
