Just voicing my opinion as a community member. Out of these two
examples (which they are) I'm preferring nr1, the CoC should be
improved (or a VideoLAN style one adopted) and we should make an
effort to try and minimize the amount of rudeness and bad behaviour in
this project.

Removing the CoC sounds to me like either we don't agree with the
notion of being civil with each other, or that we just can't as a
community handle civil discourse. Both of those alternatives make me
rather sad.

I know a lot of people want to just focus on the technical parts, and
in a perfect world we would be able to not have personal problems -
but I think we don't have a healthy community right now.

Of course, I am also fully aware that fixing the issues is going to
take way more than just applying a more specific CoC.
