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.

I think Richards' response was overkill, but yes, I also really think that telling dick jokes under the circumstances was stupid and inappropriate.

Anyway that's not the issue at this point. The current issue IMO is the response from the community, which has been ridiculously over the top, and mostly one-sided, as exemplified by your ad hominem post above.

Think about it. If Richards were a man, would you have used that term "attention whore?" Would you have found need to insult her character?
