IMHO it's abysmal that no such steps have been taken already,
*especially* at a conference like FOSDEM.
People seem to be objecting to the perceived curtailing of freedom
at a place that's got "free" in their name.
Problem with freedom is, it's either for everyone or it isn't freedom
at all. If you make one group of people feel unfree, because they're not
safe to express themselves in the same way everyone else is, then you don't
So FOSDEM *especially* should implement a code of conduct & have
staff on hand for dealing with incidents.
1.21 Jiggabytes of memory ought to be enough for anybody.
