I think that should be the decision / proposition by Caroline. If
ubuntu-women goes to the CC _without_ Caroline's approval, then I'd say
that's just gonna piss her off a bit more (+ it's probably gonna cause
unwarranted headache for her) :)

But if Caroline says "do it", then I would say one of the functions of
ubuntu-women is to protect female Ubuntu users against offenses like
this anyway. Hence, in that case, ubuntu-women has to go to the CC _on
behalf_ of Caroline if needed (so that she doesn't need to do anything
but point us to "what was said where"...).

PS. I don't suggest that we ask Caroline. I suggest that we don't do
anything unless Caroline asks. It should be okay for members to rant
without having to file a complaint, on some occasions at least...
