Debugging conference anti-harassment policies

one detail though:
"Others yet objected to the entire conversation, claiming that a discussion of whether the policy applied made them feel unsafe and asking people to stop. [...] This is the most asinine thing Ive ever heard"
You seems to have missed the sarcasm in that 'position'.
It is a rhetorical position meant to illustrate the self-contradiction in the claimed rational used to slander the speaker involved.

To be honest, I didn't read through the lca-chat archives to determine if they were being sarcastic or not. Corbet's article did not portray those in that category as being sarcastic, and I was relying on his summary. Either way, there are people who take such stances, and it's worth noting how counter-productive it is.
