We Still Let Harassers Participate In Our Community(kovalc.in)

    It's time these people were named and shamed. It is the only way to make event organisers and possible attendees aware of who to avoid because we're lining their pockets with every event we attend and every job we recommend these "people" for. There is absolutely no place for harassment in our industry and community and it has to stop.

    If SHTF and legal action was taken against anyone who was brave enough to speak out, I know I'd support any crowdfunding to get them good legal representation.

      I understand your point, but shaming is complicated and inappropriate. It would be more appropriate to educate the individual, change their ways, and improve society. Shaming will cause anger from so many people, it's just not worth it.

      Read Jon Ronson’s wonderful book So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed and it will change your opinion.

      Her answer right in the article:

      I will not name names of both the event and the speaker, because I fear for my own safety and potential legal repercussions. I wanted to share my experience because I know we can do better, and we have to shine a bright light on the awful things to find a solution.
