Thanks, I just convinced my wife (who has been using Linux for over
three years) to come to the next meeting, it wouldn't matter if she
was the only woman there.

Now she feels really unwelcome. I'm not even sure she's going to come
to SFD thanks to the hostility. She's not offended by the "guys",
she's offended by the hostility evident in the replies to Daniel. As
am I, I'm unsubscribing now.
