Has anyone heard anything from the San Diego Comic Convention folks in response to the recent blog-wide discussion of the need for an anti-harassment policy? I emailed the general address last week asking for their statement but received nothing in response. I haven’t seen anything elsewhere, but I may have missed something.
Given what I know of John DiBello being a reasonable and kind person, I kind of wonder if he tried that route already and got no answer, and that’s what spurred the public call for action. But that’s purely speculation on my part.
Update: I have since emailed the San Diego press contact and similarly received no response. My guess is either they’re working something out and not talking until it’s ready; or they’re hoping silence will cause the whole thing to blow over.
Girl Wonder has launched the Con Anti-Harassment Project, providing sample policies, letter templates, and a FAQ. That last sums up the problem and solution nicely.
