Hmm, I am surprised that people downvoted it so much as well. Perhaps people thought that the comment was naive, ie. that even if you were in favour of taking some diversity measures, we shouldn't do it just because everyone else is jumping on the bandwagon.

I suspect that you would have received a more positive response if you'd written something more measured like: "The fact that so many other groups have decided to implement diversity measures provides some degree of Bayesian evidence that it is a good idea"
