The Code of Conflict has 28 lines, including the heading.
The Code of Conduct has 81 lines, including the heading. And it needs a FAQ. Hm.

Here's a one-line Code of Conduct from Kant:
"Act only according to that maxim whereby you can, at the same time, will that it should become a universal law."[1]

Put another way:
Don't do to others what you don't want others to do to you.

Simple beats complex. No FAQ necessary, imo.


Regards!
