Default What is the ideal anti-harassment policy for atheist or skeptic conventions?

Many people on one side have argued that anti-harassment policies (AHP) are indispensable at conventions, some going so far as to characterize the movement for more and better policies as part of a campaign for social justice.

Many people on the other side have argued that AHP are unnecessary or even harmful. Justin Vacula, for example, recently characterized them as infantilizing of women and demonizing of men.

Your thoughts? Are AHP necessary and useful, or unnecessary and harmful, or somewhere in between?
