You quoted me out of context; the paragraph following said that in an environment with 600 males and 5 females, it is inevitable that at least 1 male at any given time will be desire to flirt with a female who shows an interest in Debian. If it is the flirtation that is the problem, and the problems do not go beyond that to the extend of persistent harassment, then the solution is simple; let Erinn bring more of her female friends to the channel to "spread the load". And if that is not agreeable to her, she still has /ignore at her disposal. I am willing to be a gentleman, but I'm less willing to leap to the defense of those who are consider the feminine virtues outdated. I imagine she would say that the missionary position has no role in modern society either, because it is of such great antiquity.
