Why is this policy important?

Harassment in online communities and at events, virtual or in person, is unfortunately common. Creating an official policy aims to improve this by making it clear that harassment of anyone for any reason is not acceptable within our community and events. This policy may prevent harassment by clearly defining expectations for behavior, aims to provide reassurance, and encourages people who have had bad experiences with other communities or events to participate in this one.
