Providing an explicit list of discrimination factors may give the false
impression that discrimination based on other unlisted factors would be
allowed.

Avoid any ambiguity by removing the list, to ensure "a harassment-free
experience for everyone", period.

Fixes: 8a104f8b5867c682 ("Code of Conduct: Let's revamp it.")

v2:
  - Add Acked-by.

The use of "race" may also conflict with the United Nation's views on
this matter, cfr. e.g. the UNESCO's "Four statements on the race
question"[1][2] and "Declaration on Race and Racial Prejudice"[3].
