I've had a sexist "joke" on the Ubuntu-UK list and the "leader" of Ubuntu-UK making snide comments 
about what you are allowed to say after I complained (as though it were a running joke).. Thankfully I don't 
get this shit in my LUG, and yes there aren't any other women who actively post..

When I was doing bug triage my email was clogged - I checked and found a
massive jpeg of some 19 year old guy which I naturally deleted.

I've also had bug mail saying that what a problem needed was my female
charms. I did no more work on that bug, but didn't send him a "WTF!"
email back either..

Unimpressed, particularly with Ubuntu-UK
