Update on Code of Conduct Violation 2021-08-23

Last night the CERT and Orga teams received complaints from several villages about a participant who was not respecting their boundaries when asked to leave their respective villages. After the CERT team approached the person, the situation escalated, and we decided to ask the offending participant to leave the event. The participant has left the event and is no longer welcome on site.

The situation was a direct violation of the BornHack Code of Conduct. The case was unfortunate, and the first time for BornHack. We believe we tried to handle the issue as well as we could, but in the end, we saw no other option than to ask the offending participant to leave the venue. We want to make it clear that we will continue to enforce the Code of Conduct when a situation occurs.
