    Unwrongly got infractions over gender issues and stereotyping by moderators.

    Please remove my infractions. I did not do anything wrong and was just addressing the mods that were picking on me. Its name is <lisati> and <elefy>. I did not insult anyone and they are just ganging up on me because I am a female. Thanks. They are jealous I am helping others, in the forums here, and know development in linux and code in the forums because of my age and gender and they are pushing the stereotype that young women and girls do not belong in linux and using ubuntu. Thanks.

    This is the thread I posted in that lead to this problem. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...6#post12567046

    Re: Unwrongly got infractions over gender issues and stereotyping by moderators.

    Also what are the policies for the moderators? Check my other threads where I have gone above and beyond the call of duty. And how do you make considerations for those that are direct and not trolling? I am trying to stomp out gender inequity among linux users. Check all of my work I have done over in cyanogenmod. Just because someone is in a poor mood you just block them from helping others? That is not fair or right. So I ask that you remove my infractions. I will not follow up in that one thread. So its up to you to keep those that can further help others using linux and with me trying to show them how to code kernels for linux. I asked them not to harrass me and address me, as that is an issue young women deal with other men day in and day out. Why should I have to answer other men here? I say its gender inequality. i deal with older men hitting on me on a daily basis in life and also here in the forums. I do not go running around reporting them. And I was just harassed by another male member here and he will go nameless.

    This is very unfair.

    But some leniency has to be considered for helping others. The Original Poster should be also penalized as he stated he wanted an HONEST opinion without political correctness or censorship. Thanks.

    I also noticed the beginning of that thread was deleted where the OP was asing for an honest and unbiased opinion btw. Keep changing that html code. I send some tweets off to the kernel maintainers for linux on this. Have fun with your sit down guys.

    Re: Unwrongly got infractions over gender issues and stereotyping by moderators.

    I'll explore two points only to begin with.

    1 - This thread title - "Unwrongly got infractions over gender issues and stereotyping by moderators" - reveals a number of mistaken assumptions you have been making ever since you received the original warning. The forum staff, that is the admins and moderators, are drawn from most age groups, all continents, a wide variety of cultures and, most importantly to you, both genders. This is so that in our staff discussions - and much more goes on behind the scenes than you possibly realise - we can be as sensitive as we can be to culture, gender and age issues.

    2 - You were not warned because of stereotyping - neither were the staff picking on you - you were warned because your post was contrary to the forum Code of Conduct. It is as simple as that. Let us examine what you said. Although you blanked out the offending post, the text of it is still visible in the infraction record which staff only can view here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2127464

    You will get a permission denied message if you click on that link. Please be assured that the contents of the link contains only details of the warning that you were given, the text of the warning, and the original text of your post. Part of your post said this:

    Your writing is on par with work from *cough* "Twilight," Stephenie Meyer style. While that is a good read for under-motivated and sub intelligent women and girls, I think users drawn to linux and Ubuntu OSes on their computers or devices are a notch above drivel writing.
    As a response to someone wanting feedback to their writing, do you really think that is in the spirit of the part of the Code of Conduct quoted below?

    We also want this to be a place where community can develop and we can enjoy one another's company. To achieve this, we strive to maintain an atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all and we ask all members of the community to be respectful at all times. This means please use etiquette and politeness. Treat people with kindness, gentleness and respect. If you do this, the rest of the code of conduct won't need more than a cursory mention.
    Frankly, it is not, and I agree with the warning. You are quite entitled to give critical feedback, but giving negative feedback with sensitivity is not easy and I suggest that this is something you need to think about.

    A warning is simply meant as a reminder of the need to stay within the Code of Conduct when posting here - that is all. It is not very important in the scheme of things. Unfortunately, you chose to escalate the situation by posting a rant about staff, which is why you were put on moderation, but we can explore that part of the episode when you respond to the above.

    here in this thread here the moderators relabeled my thread calling me a whiner. How rude and INSULTING to me. Here is the link. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...1#post12564151

    I think you boys should stop playing games. Very nice and professional. I knew this thread might be troll bait. I can help elsewhere if that is the attitude of the mods here. Grow up.

    The edited post contains the content that the original WARNING was for

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2127464

    For which the OP apologised in a PM to me.

    Some hours later they then posted further on the forum - for which an INFRACTION was given

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2127770

    I'll not get involved in this anymore for the time being.
