Their response was to codify the unrelated "I'm protecting religious interests" response from last year and offer it directly in the CoC (note: there was never a complaint about religious interests or even conservatism levied to LC, it was protesting a speaker notorious for promoting racist ideologies).
What's most stunning is the gag clause you agree to. What conference in the history of open tech conferences has decided to ban all conversation or reporting a about the goings on internally?
It's not just a CoC in defense of abuse and invites dangerous situations, but it then goes on to stifle free speech about the proceedings on the grounds that it is protecting free speech!
Anyways, pretty typical for HN.
