Talk:Friendly space policy

The current version does not mention age, should it? I think our events should be arranged to be open and welcoming to everyone regardless of age (unless it were an age specific event, such as a school workshop or a silver surfer event) and ensuring nobody feels under unwelcome attention or the target of ageist comments would be part of that approach. -- 15:44, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

I don't know if it's wise to put in so many examples. Several of them are already covered by UK law, but I think it needs to be clear that any attempt to make somebody feel uncomfortable at an event will not be tolerated. Meanwhile, scenarios where this policy might need to be put into effect are uncommon, and by having lots of rules about what one can and can't do at an event, we risk making them less friendly (or at least less inviting).

Good work

I'm glad we now have this, and the wording is pretty much ideal. Thanks RD. MartinPoulter 11:33, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
