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.

Richard Stallman is a man, yet he IS an attention whore. Equality restored ! Happy now ?

Would you also point out, that beside being a girl, she is also colored, way too sexy, intelligent and competent, thus no man could bear all of this in the same package ?

You're too of a defensive fan-boy, be a little objective. And the "community" is self-protective and not always realistic, see the Windows vs. Linux / proprietary vs. open / C++ vs. Java debates all over there.

The "community" as you call it, at large, is composed of smart and nice people that do not needs a tweet to solve issues. Real men uses bare hands, and women... dirty tricks against dirty jokes ? The community is ALSO composed of women that doesn't seems ti side Adria. So, what's up ? Who's over reacting ?

Actually I said that her initial reaction "rude and unprofessional." But please don't let that get in the way of your assumptions about me.

Yeah, but since you also framed your sentence with :

"The guys were telling dick jokes at a professional convention. Tell dick jokes in a work-related environment and thou may bring down wrath upon thy head. Duh! "

AND

"But the other two developers were also being rude and unprofessional, and I think she was completely within her rights to complain."

I bet you wanted to focus on the guys being bad and unprofessional, and villain, and bad, and... well you get the idea.

Imagine if one of the guy farted, would have she called the FBI, CIA, NSA for biological attack ? It's also strictly forbidden and unprofessional at PyCon, to display such jerk behaviors, farting amongst such classy people.

Duh !
