I'm here for the job of the certification, not for creating a religion or
start judging other IT professionals. I love BSD, but who are we to do such
If we are going this way, I think I'll start looking for something else,
Also: each country has it owns costumns/habits (what's the right word here?)
and they work on different ways. For example: it's commom to give a gift for
someone on Japan after doing business, even if you are in government. In
Brazil it would look like corruption or "personal favors".
So, creating such a code would be hard and exaustive, plus the job of
controlling people, checking acusations against a professional. It could
also be used to "mark" a professional ("hey, you know Mike from IT? He has
already been on an ethics comittee who found him guilty! Oh, really? Let's
fire his ass off!") even by it's older employeer, who could acuse him of
something just because he's pissed off.
Sorry, I'm against it in all ways.
I believe there should be a code, for sure, but not only for us, this should
come from the IT Professionals Association of each country.
