So having a visible policy damages you how?

See, that is the underlying disagreement here. I *expect* that from 
*any* group I participate in. And I *see* that it works well, and people 
actively make steps towards this. They don't need a sign! To the 
contrary, most people I know react allergic to signs and policies, and a 
sign would be counterproductive. Quite similarly to "I read a LOT of 
books, but any book on the official agenda of my school I didn't bother 
even touching.". 

The only effective method is to *live* the policies, as members, and pay 
a lot of attention to how new arrivals behave, and then take them into a 
1:1 conversation.
