I don’t think they are saying that, I think they just want to make a statement to the rest of the world as it were.

Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] Post-election statement affirming diversity from Code4Lib?

Is it really necessary for this list to affirm that it stands by diversity?  I have not encountered any negativity on this email list myself.  Are others experiencing this?  I am saddened to think that others are experiencing hurtful or bullying comments on this email list. :(
