The people I know who are upset about this -- myself very much included -- see it as an outrageous example of something that we have seen happen far too often. We can discuss it openly because it's a (finally) public example of something we have all seen far too much of in vaguely-public settings in the field. It needs to stop, and that's what I hear people saying. (The people I'm listening to anyway.)

I could care less about Harlan Ellison, personally. His character is well-established and the Ellison apologists can have him. In this instance, if he can be said to represent something, to me it is SF's past, the history of letting Revered Male Writers get away with whatever they like, and often with an affectionate response. ("That INSERT DIRTY OLD NAME HERE! What a card!")
