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.

Not playing the bully apologist, mind you, the actions subsequently taken against her were also completely excessive.

She pixxed & publicly shamed two people (without ever mentioning it to them) because she felt that their private conversation was insulting.

Seems entirely appropriate that a person like that was fired - I wouldn't want working with her, or have her as an employee.
