If I can explain another/a last time: there is no censorship as you were asked to put your draft alongside the original proposal, kept for reference.
There will be one final Code of Conduct but there can be several strains to serve as basis, as you were unhappy with Adam and Michael's formulation.
In this frame we have an open process were different options can be analyzed.
By modifying the document in-place you deny people the right to formulate a proposal: this type of censorship is exactly what you stand against, this seems a bit counter-intuitive on your part.

It was reverted to keep the original proposal for reference so that people can understand and reflect on the differences, not for the sake of censorship.
If we had removed you proposal and  your credentials from the begining this would have been a fault but this is not what happened.

The issue at hand here is your inability to accept different a point of view by actively modifying/removing content.

To sum up:
- the Code of Conduct was discussed and the idea accepted by all active developers
- the draft seems to find a positive echo in the community and was improved based on given feedback,
- while you raised valid points, your vendetta makes them completely inaudible,
- even less when you compare what is informally 'a core team'', i.e.  main contributors with administrator role in the project, to fascists.

I think it is time to wrap it up:
- if you are  able to formulate amendements to the current draft in a concise fashion then it is all the better,
- but if you get stuck with antagonizing behaviour, and provided that most people otherwise responded in a positive manner, the process will move forward not matter what.

Contributing new content on your CPE page and asking for review is encouraged.
However, actively modifying/removing content from other contributions will be considered as a disruption.

All the best,
