From jennv's list of possible ``male responses to women who don't feel welcome here''
'yes there are problems but there will always be problems. live with it'
That position is just so completely antithetical to hacker mentality (as far as I understand it anyway) that I must boggle.
- 'yes it crashes a lot but that's normal. live with it'
- 'no, you can't have the source code. I realise that's inconvenient, but you'll just have to accept it'
It's fine to say "ok it's broken, but I don't have time to fix it now" (implied subtext "convince me it's worse than I thought it was"), but where do people get off on saying "it's broken and you must accept that too?
