Instead of responding to an idea that would potentially benefit the whole of the community, several people got *personally offended* about the fact that the original author wanted to make sure that the effort was inclusive [as there *are* LGBTQ+, differently abled, and neurodivergent developers in this community]. 

Mr. Babic: “Snowflake" has long changed from being a reference to the stereotype of over-sensitive liberals, but has become more apropos for conservative types who lose their mind and become verbally abusive [“garbage”, “Fuck you”, “9f*gs”], because there is even the most casual reference to non-heterosexual, non-cisgendered people *existing*. Which they do, by the way. Including in this mailing list.

If that cannot be countenanced without abuse, I guess you and Mr. Normandin are in the wrong place. I take personal offence to mycroftiv being called “garbage”, as he is a demonstrably valuable member of the Plan 9 community.
