Re: Why I'm not laughing at C Plus Equality - http://blog.mollywhite.net/why-im-...
""I asked pretty reasonable and obvious questions, and you've responded with nothing but spite and thinly-veiled anger." I am not at all angry, and not even a little spiteful. However, ok, let me see if I can bring the contention level down here. To your question of "different how and why" the answer is much, much broader than can be usefully discussed here. I can summarize, you can then ask for the source of my data, I can link to a study - you can counter link and we can go deeply into the internet discussion citation rabbit hole - but I don't think it is helpful. You are free to accept my summary, reject it, respond with a assertion of your own or you can use it as a launching off point to go do a bunch of research on the topic to answer your question. All of those are valid, and all are reasonable. "I take it the real difference between men and women is that women are less willing to put up with a caustic and antagonistic environment" Despite the snark, the answer is simply "yes"...." - Soulhuntre

""Which is it?" The fact that you aren't apparently capable of considering that there may be multiple influences at work on a large population of humans that contribute to the outcome is a large part of why you can't understand the issue. This sort of simplistic thinking leads to silliness like "50% of programmers aren't women, must be patriarchy!". It also explains why no amount of rational discussion will have an effect on you. Here, I'll repeat the part that contains your answer. "It seems that those women who have both the interest, ability and personality to contribute to the tech world do so quite well." There are at least three factors mentioned, and most of them are shorthand compounds summing up many other traits. The number of women who have all of those traits with respect to this field of endeavour are less than the number of men who do so. That you don't like this, or can't understand it, changes nothing. I also liek the part where you completely ignored your attempt to..." - Soulhuntre

"And it is a good explanation of why given a choice many men will avoid having a woman on a team if they can. Because no matter what else she may be able to do - and no matter how much they may not have a problem with a woman programmer, having one around now exposes you to massive legal risk. As Adria Richards proves - having a woman around can be a lot like having a unexploded bomb in your desk. You have absolutely no idea when it will go off and try and sue you / get you fired / run to HR. We have "empowered" anyone with a victim complex so well that in many work environments the primary social factor is avoiding getting falsely accused of harassment by someone to unstable to handle a normal human interaction. Gee... I wonder why everyone isn't lining up to hire that." - Soulhuntre

"It is ridiculous to simply state that anytime someone gets their feelings hurt or can find some way to be offended that something is thus by definition "harmful". And, of course, then only certain groups feelings matter, for sure. For instance the feelings of whites, males and christians (in no order and more if they are in combination) don't matter nearly as much. Anything that offends those groups are "brave", "subversive" and "progressive". So most f the folks complaining here don't even really care that someone got hurt or insulted, they care that the wrong people got hurt or insulted. Some animals, as they say, are more equal than others." - Soulhuntre
Re: Why I'm not laughing at C Plus Equality - http://blog.mollywhite.net/why-im-...
"Actually, this field was not "started by women". There were women involved to be sure, but almost all the initial invention of the concepts, creation of the hardware, construction, installation and funding came from men. That of course has nothing to do with this topic, but it certainly points out how conveniently pesky facts will get pushed aside in the name of your narrative. "But more importantly, doesn't that mean there are entire perspectives men just don't have that the tech ecosystem is missing out on?" Nope. It seems that those women who have both the interest, ability and personality to contribute to the tech world do so quite well. The ones who don't - don't, That's like saying professional volleyball is missing out on the unique perspective someone who can't play volleyball might bring to the game. "If anything it makes the conversation that much more complicated." Not even a little bit. It makes the conversation simple, clear and obvious. There are a lot of people who WISH..." - Soulhuntre

""Trigger warning: Mentions of sexual assault, rape, and trans*phobia." Any movement made up of people so feeble that they need to be warned, in advance, of the mere mention of a concept lest they be reduced to Xanax chugging balls of self harming angst is a movement so weak at it's core that ti will simply implode." - Soulhuntre

"Hint: Because men and women are different. I know, I know... this will be a shock to you - and in fact you will almost certainly deny it... but the best thing about reality is that it is true whether you and all the rest like you believe it or not." - Soulhuntre

"Of course you aren't laughing at it - you have no appreciable sense of humor. This is why your paper, and by extension your entire field of study, is so hilarious. This whole "victim culture" thing you, and many like you, have ridden to prominence and a sort of bully pulpit that lets you shout down your opponents is about at an end. You, and all like you, have almost entirely jumped the shark." - Soulhuntre

"@Jason Gipson I promise, I am the last guy to get all defensive talking about the customer experience many people are having. It is very clear something radical needs to change, and soon. Your point about a product is a good one as well. As a customer of vendors with incredible support (FlyWheel, WpEngine and others) like Rackspace - who lets face it is the gold standard for amazing support - I hear you loud and clear. As for the communication? I was on the DMS Beta before launch and became part of the "PageLines 300". There is a constantly open Skype chat where a bunch of power users and devs hang out - with regular visits from PL staff. Ken" - Soulhuntre

"@Jason Gipson you are not alone, by a long shot, in how you feel. Let's be clear - the DMS product is a great one... the PageLines people are individually awesome the PageLines as a COMPANY is not a great vendor to work with. They make bad decisions, they lack communication clarity, they have weird priorities. All of this has left the community uncertain, their reputation sullied if not broken and I am sure it has hurt sales / adoption. It is just a bad situation. However, there are glimmers of hope. It is looking like the folks @PageLines are starting to realize the problem and make a concerted effort to pull this plane out of the tail spin. I am in contact with them every day and they do seem to be "waking up" as it were. Let's hope they can pull it off :) Ken" - Soulhuntre

"I have looked into Dynamik for a client - but in the end it was not natural enough for me to recommend. There is a lot of work there, and if you were already committed to the Genesis platform it is worth a look - but honestly it is not int he same league as DMS." - Soulhuntre

"I have been working with DMS for a bit now as a dev and as a beta tester / user - and I think it is really, really good. It addresses a number of problems that was making WordPress development much less efficient / profitable than it might have been. I wound up writing a post entitled "Can PageLines DMS Save WordPress?" ( http://bit.ly/18qquOB ) as a response to the release. A little hyperbolic? Sure, but the points are serious ones. I strongly urge anyone who used WordPress seriouslyt o go grab the free version of DMS and try it for themselves. It's worth it!" - Soulhuntre
