Re: Debian's Freenode IRC channels

Ronin, please remain calm and respectful. Melissa had at least one
perfectly valid point, and perhaps others. Her valid point is that
there is a channel that by its own admission is a pigsty, and it's
using the Debian name in a popular IRC network. Channel moved, we get
to keep our pigsty, and newcomers don't immediately find a hostile
channel with Debian's name in it. I for one am happy that the pigsty
remains, because sometimes I like to wallow around in mud just as much
as you do.

Problem solved all around.

She quoted some channel logs with context, and the ones with fewer
context were grepped. Maybe she should have used -C in her grep, but
the grepped logs do show an overwhelming amount of sexual content
whenever women were mentioned. I think that was context enough to
attempt to make a point, with which you may agree or not.

You could have used better word choice here than "slither".
