Obviously my previous message wasn't clear enough.
The discussions about "humor" concern members of one group making "jokes"
about members of a less privileged group. For example if a woman makes a joke
about men or a non-white person makes a joke about whites then it's not a
problem. But the reverse would be a problem.
The XKCD comics aren't a problem when another DD cites them (we can make jokes
about the group that we are members of) and aren't inherently problemmatic
because Randall is a member of the broader geek community.
Now if Barak is going to advocate for an exemption to the CoC for "humor" then
I think he could start by giving some examples of jokes that he would be happy
for people to make about his religion/race.
