What happened Edit

In March 2007, theveech@gmail.com posted a sexist joke on the ubuntu-uk mailing list. Caroline Ford pointed out that this was in contravention of the Ubuntu Code of Conduct but instead of the poster being reprimanded, the person who pointed out the CoC violation was run out of the community.

Documentation Edit

Responses Edit

"I've just unsubscribed - the miserable responses to what should be humour was more than I could bear."
"This sort of thing makes me wonder if I'm right in retraining in IT. Maybe I'll be better off returning to local government."
"There was only one woman in Ubuntu-UK (yes that's right, the whole of the UK), now there will be none."
