Sanctions, block in IRC? That would require mods or chanserv, right?
Temporary ban from mailing list?
I think it should be a rotating group of 10 people who vote on this, randomly picked (everyone gets a number and a program picks 10?) to eliminate politics of any sort, of course 10 is arbitrary.
I think an arbitrator should randomly be selected from the 10 on a case by case basis?
Just a few suggestions...
And what is harassment? It can only be defined to a point, it is really on an individual level, the person being harassed defines it.

In particular, we'd need to think about how to shape the sanctions section,
including things like:
- What's an appropriate sanction in non-conference setting X?
- Who is empowered to enact sanctions?
- If a participant feels they have been harassed, who do they contact
- possibly other stuff?
I think the conflict resolution part is in better shape, though it would
need a little cleanup for more universal (i.e., not conference-specific)
