As I said many times in the past couple of years, peer pressure is not
enough sometimes, and the project needs teeth to stop harmful behaviour
before it drives people away.

*The volunteers are the project's most valuable resource, and we need to
protect them.*

In situations like those Ian has described, I think DAM and
anti-harrassment should at least be informed. Coincidentally, yesterday
I was about to do exactly this after I saw some inflammatory emails sent
publicly to a member of our community.

I am adding them to this thread, as I think their input on the matter
would be most welcomed.
