Several years ago i proposed that CIX membership should require adherence
to some rules in regard to "good conduct".

I don't know if the proposal was formally considered, though few
top CIX people have seen it.

In my opinion that this would make membership in CIX something which
could figure pominently in ads, and definitely worth membership fees.
