In the News "An incident at the annual Python developer conference has led to allegations of sexism, death threats, the firings of two people, and - apparently - multiple DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks." Absolutely bizarre.

Men with "difficult personalities" are a dime a dozen in the tech sphere. None of them get near the ration of virulent hatred that a woman who speaks up does. We see this kind of behavior online on a practically weekly basis.

And lets be frank. "Difficult personality" when applied to a woman is usually just code for "woman who speaks up for herself."
