I have read no such reports about our community, but we did have some 
(relatively minor) incidents in the past that made contributors well 
less than welcome.

I'd concentrate on solving our own issues first, over trying to fix all 
the world's grievances.

That said, I'm not sure what bucket these incidents fall into, and I'm 
not sure if our list of examples of unsuitable behavior cover only 
"harassment". Maybe we should replace "Harassment includes:" with 
"Examples of actions we don't want to see in our community:"?

Let's just say, they're all pretty terrible?
