On Bravery, and Public Service

A lot of people saw twistpeach's original post about an harassment incident at Arisia. I doubt as many have seen her followup. Please take a minute to check it out if you are interested in these issues and our community response.

(TL/DR version: It is important that the main response on this, especially for people who didn't know the perpetrator, is not to focus on shaming him or banning him but to focus on working within your organizations to wipe out institutionalized tolerance of bad behavior.)
