I accept the rebuke as it was given; the #d-w channel is marked secret after
all, and if there's agreement that it should not be quoted from, I can
accept that.

However, it might be a good idea in that case to post such a policy in the
chan topic, since this is not something that I consider "bad form" in the
general case.  Even the channel FAQ which I found on the d-women website
after the fact addresses only public logging, not public quoting.
