Huh. That's funny. The last person from LinuxChix that I remember being
around was quite rude, belligerent, intolerant and completely and totally
insensitive to people when a disagreement was brought to light. She was
quite possibly one of the loudest and flamiest people that have been /on/
this list since it started.

I think, perhaps, the overall "tone" of any group, then, must be in the
"ear" of the beholder, because *I* was personally soured on LinuxChix thanks
to that one person, just as you've been soured on Debian-Women thanks to
this one thread.

At times, you may end up far away from you; you may not be 
sure of where you belong, anymore. But home is always 
there... because home is not a place. It's wherever your 
passion takes you.
