I want to take the opportunity to make it clear to Adrian and everyone
else that CCing Anti-Harassment, or forwarding emails, is not a request
for taking actions against a person.
We accept and encourage members of the community to engage the AH team
early in situations where there are risks of escalating into serious
misbehaviour; or when small but negative actions are seen, as to let us
work with the person before that becomes a persistent pattern.
Note that I am not saying anything about Adrian in particular, the
conversation in general has been deteriorating, and I think everyone
would do well in trying to listen to the "other" side, and disagree
respectfully. In many cases, acknowledging that positions are
irreconcilable and stopping the debate can be a good outcome too.
