if you can add in to the "no offensive comments related to" list
national origin or culture, then I agree, it is a good start for
community participation guidelines.

I suggest that addition so that the osm community would be subject to
fewer statements like this one from IRC #OSM channel last night:

"America's death cannot come swiftly or painfully enough."

Which, while not email list specific, statements like that and the
joking approval of it that followed, contributes to the feelings
expressed by the subject line of this email thread.
