        The point I disagree here is that speakers are not to be heald
 to the standards and policies imposed on the speakers. Some animals
 ought not to be more equal than others.

        Having said that, I re-watched the talk , and I was not
 personally offended. I think, however, if the debconf delegates
 determine that the CoC for speakers was violated, they should take
 appropriate actions regardless of the magnificence of the speaker.
