Having to have a written code of ethics is usually a very sure sign
that there are problems in this respect.  Every time i hear about
anything like that i'm reminded of the Moral Code of Bulider of Communism
(yes, there was a poster with that text in virtually every classroom
in the ussr).  That one was a lot more comprehensive, too.

Well, the early Internet types have unwritten ethics - and it is a hell
lot different from the corporate ethics of the Professional Engineers (tm).
Clashes between these two often provide spectacular fireworks :)
