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.

Since the jokes weren't directed towards her, she should have just minded her own damn business, especially since she doesn't seem to have a problem making dick jokes herself on twitter.

The guy that got fired definitely shouldn't have gotten fired (A stern finger wagging would have sufficed.)

Richards also shouldn't have gotten fired (A stern finger wagging would have sufficed).

She shouldn't have been fired for these specific actions. She should however be fired for being bat-shit crazy, and her actions in this case should be strong indication of exactly that. A little further look at what she writes could then easily confirm the diagnosis. So, yes. She should have been fired, but a long long time ago.

Burn, Witch, Burn!

Indeed, the whole case is very enlightening.
