Shaun: and yet when people spoke up on this mailing list about not being comfortable with Zoia, part of the response included people telling them essentially "you're spoiling our fun".

It wasn't the only response, and I do note that things seem to be moving to reforming Zoia, which contributes to this group feeling pretty good on the whole. But it was still a *noticeable* response, so messages implying that current culture/procedures are sufficient without continuing discussion seem premature.

Karen, yes, there is a procedure for dealing with speaking up:

// Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, expulsion from the Code4Lib event, or banning the offender from a chatroom or mailing list. // [1]

It's easier to sense someone's discomfort in person.  But in IRC, there's no way to tell and the issue can only be addressed if someone speaks up.
