Aren't there topics which are _inherently_ personal? Does that mean that a “no personal attacks”/“no ad hominum arguments” rule requires some topics to be not discussed?
(I'm totes in favor of a “no homophobia” (etc) rule obviously. I'm just musing & thinking out loud)

@ebel i often try to consider intent, and the balance of power when assessing this kind of thing
there is never a blanket rule that works, you always have to exercise some form of subjective evaluation to decide what's acceptable or not, imho
