More SJW attacks in tech

An SJW entryist attacks Ruby. Note the appeals to "everyone's doing it" as well as how quickly SJWs line up to endorse it in an attempt to create momentum for the Code of Conduct that will allow them to take over the project:
Code of Conduct
Added by Coraline Ada Ehmke 2 days ago.

I am the creator of the Contributor Covenant, a code of conduct for Open Source projects. At last count there are over 13,000 projects on Github that have adopted it. This past year saw adoption of Contributor Covenant by a lot of very large, very visible projects, including Rails, Github's Atom text editor, Angular JS, bundler, curl, diaspora, discourse, Eclipse, rspec, shoes, and rvm. The bundler team made code of conduct integration an option in the gem creation workflow, putting it on par with license selection. Many open source language communities have already adopted the code of conduct, including Elixir, Mono, the .NET foundation, F#, and Apple's Swift. RubyTogether also adopted a policy to only fund Ruby projects that had a solid code of conduct in place.

Right now in the PHP community there is a healthy debate about adopting the Contributor Covenant. Since it came from and has been so widely adopted by the Ruby community at large, I think it's time that we consider adopting it for the core Ruby language as well.

Our community prides itself on niceness. What a code of conduct does is define what we mean by nice. It states clearly that we value openness, courtesy, and compassion. That we care about and want contributions from people who may be different from us. That we pledge to respect all contributors regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, or other factors. And it makes it clear that we are prepared to follow through on these values with action when and if an incident arises.

I'm asking that we join with the larger Ruby community in supporting the adoption of the Contributor Covenant for the Ruby language. I think that this will be an important step forward and will ensure the continued welcoming and supportive environment around Ruby. You can read the full text of the Contributor Covenant at and learn more at

Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
I also enjoyed the false claims about a community to which he doesn't even belong. I've seen this cookie-cutter approach being used in various projects. The problem is that most of the respondents don't understand what is going on and are taking the entryist at face value. This guy, however, does:
Yes, we know who you are. To everyone reading this thread, please take time to read the following by ESR (Eric Raymond). (Why Hackers Must Eject the SJWs)

You now have the basic information behind why people are attempting to wedge in CoCs.... If any sort of CoC is adopted, let's adopt one like the "Code of Merit" where people who do great work are the ones working up the chain with the purpose of being a leader in the community.
However, even this response makes the mistake of nodding to equality and so forth. They prey on that sort of niceness and tolerance. "What's important in this process however is that people who might otherwise feel excluded from certain open source communities be involved in shaping the final code of conduct." Reject it. Reject ALL of it. Let those hypothetical people feel excluded. Give them no ground whatsoever.

Saw your tweet on it - three cheers for PHP repelling the invasion! And each language is just one more notch in their belts with less and less being done.

PHP finally got off the block with a major revision - I think it's the first major revision in over a decade that is from - and so, two times, two times they say - the old girl is not dead and she isn't the property of some particular interest (whether the CoC gang or Facebook).

If this makes people feel more comfortable to contribute to Ruby, then I am positive on it. I think we basically do this already, it's just not explicitly stated."

If you already do it already, WTF is the point of building some penal apparatus to force you to do what you do already?

It sounds like there's hope that Ruby won't succumb to this horrible CoC, but I'm not completely hopeful they'll repel the invasion.

I was at RubyConf in Nov and the conference was full of SJWs. The opening keynote of the conference was a mess and one of the tracks existed purely to give these people a platform.

If you haven't been to one of these conferences to see what these people talk about there, you may want to watch as much of this as you can stomach.

you will demonstrate *to them* that you are NOT violation of the code of conduct OR ELSE.

they defined ( and are 'responsible' for redefining ) the code. it's pure absurdity to think that they could be in violation of it.

They rarely admit it as clearly:

OpenSource is like a proper university that grants tenure to valued contributors. I forget where but someone said you need to tolerate even loons because they often are the only ones that come up with creative, out-of-the-box ideas.

Tenure is the ultimate expression of tolerance, and CoCs are the exact opposite.

Would that make Coraline Ada a CoCservative?

If someone rants, the response should be "That's nice, but have you seen Bug #6473 - it will be a PITA to debug and fix" and then just wait a bit for the pull request.

Also, for those like me who forgot Milo was going to interview ESR and MM, that answers the whole mess.

This just reminds me of my thoughts towards the show Mad Men. I managed to make it through about a season and a half of it and all I kept thinking was "this is what work was like before SJWs and women ruined it". The show was trying to portray it as dark and evil but it really was, was fun and laid back. If you want to drink, then fine, just get your work done and don't do anything that could hurt other people. If you want to speak your mind then do it, just accept that someone else might disagree with you.

Now it's constant thought police and Nanny Stateism. Walk on eggshells because someone might report you for saying the wrong thing. Work has been turned from a productive environment into a daycare.

Blogger Doktor Jeep January 20, 2016 7:53 PM  

It's almost like clockwork with these people:

Ugly tranny... check
Died hair.... check
Problem glasses ... check
Dressing like a blind lesbian (regardless of what you were and/or are right now) ... check
Total lefoid/communist ideology that must be foisted on the world that everybody must obey ... check
Attempting takeover of OS tech... check.

And it would fit perfectly: there is no need for a Lenin giving orders when there is such a solid pattern to the mental illness that automatically goes straight into leftoid/SJW entryism. What do these people read "Fucked Up in the Head and becoming a big fat ugly tranny Illustrated"? (You don't want to see the swimsuit issue). What does it have articles like "Top 10 ways to wreck people you disagree with" and "Why tech must be under our control".

I'm seriously thinking there is a motive and an MO behind all this. Communists would make their moves by taking over train stations, radio stations, and newspapers. I think something like this is going on. They want "in", through just about every crack and seam they can get into. Why? So they can silence the opposition, an opposition based on their views of people who are simply "not them". And that's easy for them really, because very few people are them and would be.

The long term goal that they all "collectively" share, even without an order-giver, is to no-platform everybody who is not them. Meaning, someone who might look at this creature and say "um.... that's not a woman".

Still it seems like they have marching orders but maybe something darker is afoot. Maybe the programming is so well table-topped and think-tanked that the people behind it know exactly what their "products" (of no father, low testosterone, infection by leftoid PC logic, skinny women beating up NAVY seals in movies, and an endless barrage of tumblr) are going to do without telling them.
Hence the feminist/lesbian/tranny/gay who does NOT push The Narrative gets treated worse than the usual targets - the factory does not tolerate bad machines.

I don't know. When I first saw this page, I read the top and I actually said to myself "I bet it's some twink hair GLBT type behind this" and that was in jest. Lo and behold!!!

OpenID sigsawyer January 20, 2016 9:20 PM  

Very common rhetoric from the SJW. I've had to crush entryists before (granted, it was the SJWs in my college's sci-fi club trying to install a Code of Conduct through majority voting). I beat them when they pulled this logic, almost word for word:

"What a code of conduct does is define what we mean by nice. It states clearly that we value openness, courtesy, and compassion. That we care about and want contributions from people who may be different from us"

THAT'S WHERE YOU HAVE TO HIT THEM! That's the weak point in their rhetoric, because they've outgrouped themselves by insulting the community, implying that they're evil shitlords who need mommy SJW to keep them in line. When they go for this tactic, you have to ask them "Is this community not nice? Are we excluding or discriminating against anyone?"

If they say "Yes, you are discriminating" you respond with:

"Who are you to tell us that we're not decent people? Are we children that have to have your rules imposed on us? I want you to go to every person in this room, look him in the eye, and tell him exactly how he is discriminating and how your rules will fix that, and if you can't, be quiet." (Outgrouping, creating the bad either-or that fries leftist amygdala, forcing conflict that the leftist hates)

If they say "No, this is a good community, this is for the one-in-a-million chance that something bad happens, we just want to be sure" (much more likely response) the correct shutdown is along the lines of: "The only people who install rules against things people don't do are the weird villains in dystopia movies. We don't have speed limits for the sidewalk because people don't run down the street dangerously. So I ask again, are we discriminating against anyone?" (If they say yes, move to the first argument)

(If no again) "You're showing a remarkable fervor and insistence against something that's only a slim chance. Are you some weird authoritarian that loves extra rules? If this is about human decency, having this rule in place is telling us that we're not decent people, that we're so terrible that we need to codify being nice. I want you to go look every person here in the eye and tell him that you don't feel comfortable being in the room with him without an authority to keep him in check, and if you can't do that, because that's what this code of conduct is saying, you should sit down and be quiet."

A twitter account I happened to stumble upon:

This guy's methods are simple. Go all around twitter looking for the hottest girls, making sure they're attention whores and thus most likely promiscuous from their account activity. Tell them to send you nudes or GTFO. Tell them to send you nudes holding up your name in the picture. Tell them to send you money. I'd estimate 1 out of 100 actually do. Then you hope some of them live nearby. Then you just tell them to keep sending you nudes with your name in the picture. Then you tell them to keep sending you money. Then eventually you know they're DTF if they've been sending all those goodies so far. And voila. Insta-harem. Last I checked, this guy was at 88, all of them with smokin' bodies in my opinion.

THis guy is the next step. This is what the future has in store. Roosh is already obsolete. Game? TECHNOLOGY HAS MADE GAME OBSOLETE!!!! I'll bet this guy doesn't waste any time even talking to them in person.

There's attempted SJW entryism at this hobbyist site too:

The 6502 was the microprocessor in the Apple II, Commodore 64 and Atari 2600. It's used in embedded applications these days.

Notice the typical nonsense:

1. The selling point is not that the CoC is helpful or any sort of improvement but that it's "easy to adopt".
2. Kakfatrapping: no one has actually done anything wrong or even been accused of doing anything wrong.
3. The suggestion came from a newbie forum member who has no technical contributions.
4. Doubling down after initial pushback.
5. It is "ideal" despite the fact the forum has had no notable problems since it was launched. In 2002.
6. An inability to see anything "contentious" despite the previous poster taking exception.

We had 3 days of 10 presentations a day, about Voice over IP, about jitter, about inter-packet delays, about Asynchronous Transfer Mode and bla bla bla ... boring tech stuff about 6 people in the world are interested in and only half of those understand. [ok, slight exaggeration]

Nobody said anything about what they do between the sheets, or who they do it with. Seriously, who gives a rat's ass?

The generic scheme appears to be: locate an existing organization with a large number of users or contributors or money; infiltrate and install yourselves in safe, tenured positions with the political clout to get rid of opponents; feast on the work of others until the money runs out. As we know, plenty of organizations (foundations, churches, universities and so on) have been repurposed this way.

For example, anyone recall that foundation for some piece of software we heard about on this blog last year, where, as I seem to recall, the foundation money for several years instead was spent on some women in technology scam. Then they were broke and had to move on elsewhere.

In this case of open source, you can note that the SJWs are never interested in forking the code and building their own alternative and superior community. I guess that would lead to a lot of tedious work on uninteresting tech things, and, you see, they have so much more to contribute elsewhere.

The GNOME foundation, which is the until recently most popular Linux desktop environment. Steadily less so as they make it weirder and less easy to use for all but the most naive users, see the link for the GNOME 3 and following section. No one I know is now using GNOME for their Linux desktop, it's gotten really bad.

The situation wasn't quite as dire as you remember, for among other things the foundation wasn't bothering to collect money it was owed or promised, follow the above link to the foundation, where it says:

She was replaced in June 2011 by Karen Sandler, who served until March 2014 and has not been replaced. The Executive Director is selected and hired by the GNOME Board of Directors. Following Sandler's departure, the GNOME Board announced that cash reserves had been drained due to a cash flow problem, as the GNOME Foundation had to front the costs of late payments from sponsors of the 'Outreach Program for Women'. Spending for non-essential activities was therefore frozen to allow the cash reserves to recover throughout 2014.

Plus if you follow the links of the above, you'll see that when they ran out of money due to focusing on such a worthy cause they got a burst of donations.

If you have a Christian background as I did, what you do is focus on charity and take those principles with you... like not becoming a poverty pimp. (Ask me about the Portland Hotel Society sometime...) If you don't have a moral code... well, you invent one like this.

It's an acknowledgement of Original Sin, the just the Jesus-free version.

@32 The biggest Ruby fanatic I knew was a neckbeard fedora who gets cucked by another woman. Nice guy, but he reminds me of that dude that murder-suicides in Boogie Nights.

The selling point is not that the CoC is helpful or any sort of improvement but that it's "easy to adopt"

So is a puppy. The hard / expensive part comes from housetraining.
