"If however, anyone feels personally abused, threatened, or otherwise uncomfortable due to this process, that is not acceptable."
Sounds progressive, except when carried too far...
"“Freedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible, can be interpreted as hate speech,” the bill reads."
I call bullshit on all these "statements of conduct" that vainly hope to cater to or fend off every individual's interpretation of the moment. Every group is by definition made up of individuals, with their own usually divergent truths and self-prejudices held dear. Disagreements, disappointments, and often resulting in someone blaming someone for those.
If someone's not acting with a project's best interests at heart tell them so, and why. If someone lays an egg on a mail-list ask them to restate "more usefully". We've all seen even neutral plain prose interactions fail completely due to 'feelings'. And there is usually no mystery to those who have been following along, rather than those jumping in with pitchforks and blazing torches.
Quite amazing this progression, that since we are all supposed to be mature adults, we can't act on that basis without worrying someone's feelings will come up 'hurt'. Latitude and understanding from all parties in a conversation is what's required.
If you are more interested in telling everyone you are feeling hurt than you are in getting the subject at hand worked out, ain't no statement of conduct going to help.
