There's a difference between a topic as a whole, and a sub-thread which
does not appear to be going anywhere useful.

If this thread were about proposing balanced gender representation
across the site as a whole, I could agree that my attempt to divert
this thread elsewhere was inappropriate.  So far, I've not seen you make
any such proposal.  And, personally, I think that such a proposal would
probably be either ineffective, or inappropriate, given the volunteer
and dispersed nature of Debian.  As a general rule, the way to get things
done around here is to do them yourself.

I specifically pointed out that I was ignoring that interpretation
because it was a false implication.  If you read laughter into what I
wrote, it wasn't mine.

I have made that sort of claim, at times (for example, when faced with
a sentence structure that seemed garbled).

However, that was not my claim, in the message you are responding to.
