Humour has been clearly linked with acts of terrorism, as can be 
attested by many patrons of air-transport.  Linux Australia has no place 
supporting illegal or anti-social acts, and the code of conduct should 
make that clear through explicit banning of antics, bon mots, 
buffoonery, capers, caprice, clowning, drollery, farce, frolics, gags, 
gambolling, horseplay, humour, japes, jests, larks, laughing, 
one-liners, parodies, pranks, puns, put-ons, repartee, ribbing, 
ridicule, satire, shaggy-dog stories, shenanigans, taunts, tomfoolery, 
tricks, whimsy, wisecracks, witticism and yarns.
