Hey Caroline,

Sorry to hear about this type of stuff still happening today. Childish, 
sexist, you name it, it doesn't belong. I am willing to bet the people who 
make/made these remarks more than likely don't commit 50% of what you do to 
the Ubuntu community. You will hear none of them remarks from me, as you tore 
apart my kubuntu-docs package for Edgy :)  I know it is probably hard to 
ignore it but we all know you are the better person. Sorry again to hear this 
Caroline, and just keep up the awesome bug triaging that you do. Oh, and 
leave kubuntu-docs alone for Feisty this go round ;p
