It wasn't #gentoo-roughshit, it was in #gentoo-infra - the place devs go
on infra matters.  To the outside of Gentoo it may be a private channel,
to Gentoo itself it is not (or should not be) a private channel.  I can
expect proper tone from an infra related channel just like from #gentoo-doc.

If #gentoo-infra bangs their moms the rest of the community deserves to
know.  I didn't mention names or anything implying specific participants
to the outside.

I was more or less told to fuck off if I don't like the tone.
This is where I left the channel.

How will I be able to tell women on LinuxTag 2010 that we do want women
in Gentoo with such tone in #gentoo-infra?
