Deborah,

I'm not sure what you mean about something for the offender, so some
examples would be good. My big concern is that we not create a new group
of "outsiders" -- folks who've been told they've offended someone and
therefore are made to feel uncomfortable. I fully understand the
pushback from people who feel that all of this will have a chilling
effect and that some folks will be made to feel "guilty." How do we
avoid that?

I'd recommend big group hugs at the closing of the conference to show we
all still love each other, but, damn, the 70's are long gone! :-)

It's especially helpful to have expectations for the community, since the more the community can be trusted, the more safe people will feel to mention when something's an issue.

Not so much for the person who intends to offend, because they're going to do that wherever they think they can; but for the person who didn't intend to offend (and/or doesn't think they did) or the person who wants to avoid offending (while still actually enjoying the party)? I recall some stuff on that angle from a recent discussion of sf conventions, and should be able to dig up links if it's of interest to anyone here.

This is, whatever else you want to call it, a problem because it decreases the feeling of community.

Oftentimes, as you pointed out, stuff like this is unintentional, and the accidental offender and offended will resolve the incident by having that initial discussion. I would predict that most incidents will be resolved here.

We really can't stop people having opinions, but what we could do here is have constructive discussions that lead to something tangible (affirmation of decision, change in CoC, modify decision, etc,), instead of reproducing the comments section of a story on a news site.
