    You assume the involved parties are the referenced person and the people who were in the room at the time.

Ignoring it because we are not "involved" is no different from agreement with such exclusionary ignorance. Fortunately, ignorance can be solved with education. As the post says: we can do better.

    It only reflects on the Perl community as a whole if uninvolved people such as yourself who have no standing in the situation continue to make a big stinking deal of it.

    The TPF, directly addressed by this article, has taken responsibility - see the comment by Dan Wright.

    Yet I can't fail noticing that up to today almost every mentioning of the event leads to people attacking each other.

    Could we please de-escalate? Different people are allowed to have different opinions, and might experience…

    This is the first really thoughtful "Open Letter" type of thing on "the incident" that I have seen.

    Certainly this person seems to be the only person in the Perl community who has actually read the SoC.

    It's probably a good lesson in not just clicking "I Accept" when presented with terms and conditions.
