London CSS organisers may also provide an additional code of conduct for the needs of individual communication channels or events.
Anyone asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If anyone engages in harassing behavior, the London CSS organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no refund.
This applies to all London CSS events and associated communication channels.

You can make a personal report by:
- Twitter’s direct message service: @LondonCSS.
