Incident at Autreat 2013[edit]

There was a incident at Autreat 2013, in which the accessibility needs of one attendee were misunderstood by another (who, besides being an attendee, was also one of the organizers). The resulting conflict was very badly handled, causing the first attendee to have a severe emotional and psychological reaction. After the event was over, the organizers, rather than acknowledge the problem, blamed the attendee whose accessibility needs were misunderstood. This has continued for months. Two main primary sources are: the official incident report from the organizers; the perspective of the first attendee (1st of 7 parts, see comments for links to the others). While I'm not aware of any secondary sources discussing this (yet), it did seem significant enough to at least mention it here on the talk page, in case others might be inspired to search for sufficient sources to justify including it in the article.
