Oh I've just been asked to leave the Ubuntu-UK planet because of my
language. The comment referred to my "recent reaction to an email on the
ubuntu-uk's mailing list." (complaining about a sexist joke).

I'm naturally removing myself from the Ubuntu Uk planet - I don't see
why I should make themselves look more diverse than they actually are.


There was only one woman in Ubuntu-UK (yes that's right, the whole of
the UK), now there will be none.
