    This is relatively minor, but I don't feel quite comfortable with the
    wording.  "pledge to make it a harassment-free experience" to me implies
    that we pledge that *nobody will ever experience harassment*.  I don't
    think that's something we can deliver, any more than a government can
    promise there will be zero crime.  I think we could promise to
    *maintain* a harassment-free experience, which implies things to a
    restoring harassment-free state after it's been broken.
    Everything else looks good.
Could you come up with an alternative concrete text proposal? 

My take-away is that you say we should use
* "pledge to strive to make ..." or 
* "pledge to try their best to make ..." or
* "strive to make ..." 
in which case we may also need to change "The Pledge".

On the other hand: the rest of the document does clearly lay out that
what we promise is to deal with incidents in an effective manner.
And by the mere inclusion of mechanism to do this, it is actually clear
that we can't guarantee that *nobody will ever experience harassment*.

I guess it comes down to subtleties of how pledge, promise, strive, ...
