There are those on the list who don't "get" sexual harrassment. Sexual
harassment is defined in the following manner - "If you feel harassed
you are being harassed." This is pretty much the law of the land.
If the stuff that has come across the list was said in the workplace the
sayers would be labeled perpetrators and action taken by the
institution. If the institution continued to allow said behavior, it
could be taken to court.
No longer is it he said/she said. If someone feels intimidated or
belittled because of gender, then harassment is occurring.
Sure, you can filter, but this really means that we collectively, as
members of the listserv, are OK with perpetrators active within our
community, that it is the filterers who are abnormal, not the perpetrators.
Personally, I vote for banishment as there have been lots of
opportunities to cease and desist, lots of (sometimes) mild admonitions
