More than 90% of the worlds men use that as their chief criteria for choosing who they flirt with. Should Debian now exclude all heterosexual men?Do you flirt with each and every woman you meet? I don't and I think none of my male friends do either.
Although I don't flirt with every woman I meet, I do flirt with the women who interest me. Which has nothing to do with Erinns request that no male ever flirt with a female on the #debian channel. In a channel with 600 males and less than 5 females, it is inevitable that at least one male will be at a point in life where he decides it is worthwhile to flirt with a female who is interested in Debian. We have a choice; we can treat the females like females, or we can treat them like males. Erinn seems to be saying she doesn't want to be treated like a female, but I can guarantee, if you start treating her like a male, she won't like that either. I recommend to everyone to learn basic civility which means treating women with politeness, and putting them on /ignore when they act inappropriately.
