You know, cracking a line like that at pycon you could get fired.

This is completely off-topic.

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

I was referring to something off-topic, namely the firing of one guy whose private conversation with another had been overheard by a woman who took offense. Obviously the two men had passed some suggestive remarks (not about the woman in question, mind), which she found not amusing. She took a photo of the men, posted them at twitter.
She was fired by SendGrid, her employer, shortly after that.
See the whole story here, if you're interested:

It's a sad world indeed in which you're not allowed to make jokes about dongles for fear of unemployment :snooty:

How pathetic.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Bit of a forking nuisance, that you can't make a joke about a dongle says a lot about her state of mind. :roll:

Indeed.

Like Mary Whitehouse and her cronies, who found "filth" in everything. Even in Andy Pandy and Looby Lou getting into the toybox together at the end of the show.

Says more about their minds than it does of the programme makers.

I don't think you should take offense at everything, but I also believe we shouldn't judge that woman because she had enough at that conference. We don't know what kind of dongle jokes those men made. There's a difference between 'dongle ....giggle' and 'hey babe, wanna see my super-dongle'.
In my opinion she shouldn't have published that photo, though, mainly because it doesn't only show the jokers. But then, maybe she had confronted men about jokes like this too often without anything changing and finally decided that enough was enough.

I think it would be nice if everyone just thought a moment before cracking a joke.
