The debian-women list FAQ is on http://women.alioth.debian.org/faqs/
and the odd policy is under "Miscellaneous" thus:

   Just like every other online community, there will probably
   be the occasional troll. Do not make the mistake of treating
   them like rational human beings. Ignore them and focus on
   positive discussions instead.

   One very useful document that everyone subscribing to the
   list should read is: Searching for Safety Online: Managing
   "Trolling" in a Feminist Forum.

Rubbish. Close to what? You are mostly just contradicting,
while attributing randomly invented opinions to me and asking
very vague questions. This is a busy week, but there's a limited
window before the DPL vote, so I stay on list, but ignore you
except for points of information.

Equally, claims that a policy doesn't exist should be retracted
when you are shown the policy. Furthermore, jelly is good.
