(b)  Refrain from conduct __within the Forum__ such as:  

*	Directly insulting or demeaning another person

[JR] This seems vague. Some people take things as demeaning when they are not meant to be demeaning.  I think this could be used to stifle conversation. We’ve had accusations that conduct has been insulting/demeaning on the forum. Would you say it’s risen to that level? I support the principle, but would like clarity so we don’t get end up mixing persons with ideas eventually.

*	Touching another person in a physically inappropriate way. 
*	Deliberately intimidating, stalking or following (online or in person) another person.

[JR] Following online? Like on twitter? 

*	Inappropriately disrupting official Forum events, including meetings, talks, and presentations.

[JR] Inappropriately is too vague. Are we trying to change a specific behavior at the CAB Forum? Could we clarify what this means? 

*	Spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting, and other attention-stealing behavior.

[JR] Baiting/flaming are too similar to criticism of the idea. Can we add clarity?
