Hi all,

FYI, Shlomi Fish has filled a bug in Launchpad
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/237852) complaining :

A few days ago, I went to #ubuntu-women and had a friendly discussion
with the people there. Then I decided to send this introduction which
I wrote for some time:


As a result, someone there has mis-quoted, mis-applied and
mis-interpreted my post into believing I was "sexist" and a
run-of-the-mill "troll", and so unsubscribed me. (after my first

Although the bug has been tagged as invalid (non software related), he
insists and writes:

"links, please! Where can I find the team leaders? This search -
http://www.google.com/search?q=ubuntu%20%22team%20leaders%22 yields
junk. I don't know who to turn to.

Or should I go directly to http://www.ubuntu.com/community/processes/council ?"

Well, he can of course do this and we would know about it only once
the case is opened, as the CC-list is privately archived. I wrote the
following comment in the bug:

"Well, the problem with Shlomi is that he trolls around in womens
lists. He just has been kicked out of various Linuxchix-Lists because
of his non-constructive and sexist behavior and only one week later he
shows on in Ubuntu-women! Unfortunately for him, we
Ubuntu-Women-member also hang around in other women-related lists and
channels so Shlomi was easy enough to spot as the troll we already
know from elsewhere. His introduction reads like a personal ad, but we
are NOT a dating group! I suggest Shlomi should eventually read and
sign the Code of Conduct before considering to join any Ubuntu-related
list in the future. He can of course bring his complaint to the
Community Council, but he is not a member of the Ubuntu community and
has not contributed in any constructive way to Ubuntu or its
derivatives, nor has he been harmed or offended by any member of the
Ubuntu Community AFAIK."

IMHO, we should prepare to explain our point of view to the CC if he
gets in touch with us.
