    A quick search gave me this:



    I definitely can understand that, Sub-zero was probably my favorite character.
    We I'm not talking of course in this case about rocks, tables nor words that have no gender nor any words for that matter. We are here talking about genders when relating to individuals in open source community's communication and there are 2 genders you can chose from. Either be male or female and don't force people to accept your views of the world and to remember 5235235 pronouns for all the genders you make up.
    We all know what happens when you start forcing people to accept your belief system or your religion.

    that might escalate rather quickly. "Oh you like Russian Summer I guess?...hello comrade"

    This is where I have to point out that weather is a crappy discussion as well. Ever had a Celsius versus Fahrenheit argument?
    No I'm not living in the US or Liberia. Therefore Fahrenheit is never mentioned in any discussion.

    A quick search gave me this:
    In English, the four genders of noun are masculine, feminine, common, and neuter
    • Masculine nouns refer to words for a male figure or male member of a species (i.e. man, boy, actor, horse, etc.)
    • Feminine nouns refer to female figures or female members of a species (i.e. woman, girl, actress, mare, etc.)
    • Common nouns refer to members of a species and don't specify the gender (i.e. parent, friend, client, student, etc.)
    • Neuter nouns refer to things that have no gender (i.e. rock, table, pencil, etc.)

    Why Sports? - The classical how to involve in small talk compend states in general : avoid religion, race, politics, sex, finance ...but rather mention weather, sports e.g.....
    Coworker 1: Did anyone see the Cowboys game last night?

    Coworker 2: Fuck the Cowboys. We watch the Steelers.

    Coworker 3: You guys are both out of it. The Cardinals are the best.

    Coworkers 1 and 2 then killed Coworker 3. They got sentenced to 12 years in a medium security prison where the guards forced them to watch NASCAR. They committed suicide last Thursday.

    And that's why we don't discuss sports.

    Dont get too excited:
    Code:
    Steam Play can't be implemented as long as the FreeBSD Ports Collection [I]lacks multilib support[/I], making it impossible to package Proton dependencies.
    Made me sit up till i clicked the link

    I never paid much attention to codes of conduct and such, but I assume it is just a rough guideline about how to act in forums, etc, similar to a formatting code for a source code file... I don't know, probably someone else knows more.

    In the end of the day, is not going to do anything to change the look and feel for the OS like the old code didn't.
    You had to use pronouns such as xir, xis, ve, ze etc. remember them and If person got mad your patches could be refused from what I understand.

    Somehow: I dont get the no simulated hugs one...I personally dislike getting hugs (real) by non-close-friend/family individuals. But how is a virtual hug harmful in any way? Or does it imply that the hug sender might get fantasies about touching someone in unappropriate way and this is considered as sexual harassment?
