Sure it can, we've DONE it. How can we have done something impossible?
But we do it when we think it's the best way to proceed, the most
efficient way to arriving at the best decsions we can. It's, to
many/most of us, clearly not here. I agree with Deborah Fitchett:
> There's a code of conduct which has been developed the way Code4Lib
develops things: ie the work's been done by people who're interested in
doing the work. What's special about anti-harassment that it alone
should bear the burden of bureacracy?
People who think nothing exists unless it's formally/legally organized
with a defined membership think Code4Lib doesn't even EXIST. But
obviously we do exist! And obviously we do things!
And we have some problems, like any community, and we're trying to
address some of them. But I don't think I've seen anyone suggest that we
as a community are so fundamentally problematic that our very nature
needs to be fundamentally changed to address it. Generally, most of the
people, even those pointing out problems, like Code4lib -- otherwise,
why would they care to spend time fixing it?
