What is the "RUE"?
Not what, who, the Resident Unicode Expert who spent two years spewing his insults at the entire Python community until the moderators finally woke up, did their job, and kicked him into touch.
I'm autistic, stepped across the line, and got hammered. Hypocrisy at its best.
While some of us know your background, Mark, not everyone on this list does as people join at different times, so please try to give the benefit of the doubt to people. Marietta obviously takes how children are reflected personally and was trying to point out that fact. I don't think she meant for the CoC reference to come off as threatening, just to back up why she was taking the time out to speak up that she was upset by what was said.
This list is irrelevant. The PSF has to be consistent across all of its lists. Who the hell is Marietta, I don't recall a single post from her in 16 years of using Python?
