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.

If you read carefully, you'll notice that the guy got fired AFTER an internal investigation might have concluded that's not the first occurence of misconduct, internal or external like in PyCon. We do not have the full background of the story and no detail regarding the investigation procedure, we can however be somewhat confident that if the company decided to split from this coder, they had enough evidence that side them.

The guy can be really a fine one, good coder, nice bearded employee with good mood. But if a company decided to entrust a way of conduct beyon reasonable, with little freedom for mistake and/or misconduct, they are also free to do so. Employee got fired for using a forgotten consumer's 1$ coupon.

I'm not mysoginic, but the girl behavior is at full fault : instead to face back the two guys with her feminist pride and tell them to go fuck themself (or any more appropriate diplomatic stance) she smiled at them (obviously already having planned the public shaming) took a pic and disapeared, without giving them a chance to correct themselves.

She saw a bug in their code, and decided to release it in production !

She's at full fault because this misconduct can be applyed again in another case to side her case when she needs it. She showed a really untrustful conduct. If she is so much about sexism, she showed no great move from the woman side.
