Can y'all take this to a private thread and not include the ruby mailing list with this particular manner of time-wasting? It's not really the mailing list's purpose to serve as a soapbox for what irks you.

I haven’t heard any technical discourse or any relation to Ruby in a very long time. I am out. This 43 message thread about politics is disgusting. Cheers. Unsubscribe.

I haven't posted on the list for years. So imagine my horror at seeing a huge thread complaining about some old joke where nearly all the posters are top posting and not even selective quoting. TOP POSTING for Christ's sake, in direct violation of the list's posting guides and all that is holy. Oh the humanity.

Thank you.

It’s so nice to see the old Usenet mindset is alive and well in the next
millennium!

Way to bring us full circle. FYI, it’d be preferable to leave sexist humor off this list.

I vote for the kanji radical to be replaced by that of a man. I suppose the
result would not change that much!
Thanks, Mohamad!

奻 is a very uncommon Kanji character in Japan (not even present in my dictionary program), more commonly it's spelled 言い争う where 言 has a meaning say and 争 to argue or dispute.
