emmaGood evening.04:20
emmaI have a few questions for anyone who's available. It would be nice to talk to madpilot but I don't see that person here.04:21
rwwI'm around, though I'm perhaps not most representative of the ops team on the sort of questions you probably have.04:21
emmarww: I agree.04:22
emmaProbably it would be best to talk to someone who's on the IRC council if any of them are awake.04:25
IdleOnethere is an email address @ !appeals for the ircc04:28
IdleOneif that helps any04:28
emmaI think jussi and Pici are on that council could someone tell me who else is currently part of that group?04:28
emmaIdleOne: could be useful :)04:28
rwwemma: Pici isn't on it any more04:28
IdleOne!appeals > emma04:28
ubottuemma, please see my private message04:28
emmarww: oh okay.04:28
rwwemma: elky, jussi, topyli, nhandler, tsimpson04:29
IdleOneI think best thing would be to email04:29
emmarww: oh wow, elky is on the IRC council again?04:29
rwwemma: yup, she replaced Pici last vote04:30
rww(jussi got re-elected)04:30
emmaThat's an enormous set back for the ubuntu community on IRC.04:30
emmaIdleOne: You may be able to answer some of the questions I have.04:31
IdleOneI'll try04:31
emmarww: You might also but since I consider you a friend I'd rather not get mixed up in a potential disagreement with you.04:31
emmaIdleOne: What is the stated purpose of #ubuntu-ops at this point?04:31
IdleOneresolution of bans in the ubuntu core channels04:32
rwwI'll sit in the background, then. Feel free to highlight me, anyone.04:32
emmaRight. So I think it's a problem when you leave bans on people from the channel you have chosen to resolve bans.04:33
hypatiathey are still free to appeal via email, yo04:33
hypatiaas everyone else is04:33
IdleOneemma: there are a few users who are banned from this channel but that is because that have demonstrated a lack of willingness to work with the ops team.04:33
hypatiai've only ever seen people banned from here for being disruptive or not following obvious channel policy04:33
tonyyarusso(And, interestingly, you're clearly not one of them.)04:34
emmaI don't need to be the direct victim of a bad policy to recognize that it's not right.04:34
hypatiabanning disruptive users is a bad policy? seems like a good policy to me04:35
IdleOneemma: to be honest I don't feel I am in the best position to answer questions about policy. There are other active ops so if they feel like tackling some questions...04:35
hypatiaparticularly when there's an obvious method for appeal04:35
IdleOneI do think that it would be best to direct these questions to the IRCC though04:36
tonyyarussoYou do, however, have to be the person affected by a ban to appeal it.  We've been over that before, on at least two occasions.04:36
rwwIf I may interject, it's previously been decided that policy discussions, even using specific bans as examples, are fine when done by third parties.04:36
emmaI don't know the details about every person you have banned from -ops. But I am particular concerned about friends from ##club-ubuntu who seem to get singled out with prejudice and then denied any opportunity to address that in the channel ostensibly reserved for questions about op abuse.04:37
tonyyarussoIf you'd like to discuss policy in generic terms, the -irc mailing list would be more appropriate for that.04:37
IdleOneop abuse should be reported to the IRCC see !appeals04:37
emmaFor example I think it would be appropriate to unban Anastasius from this channel.04:37
tonyyarussorww: Usually not here though, since it falls outside of the channel scope definition IdleOne summarized.  (Hard to have a policy discussion when only a few people can be around for it.)04:37
rwwtonyyarusso: I specifically mean here.04:38
rwwtonyyarusso: You can disagree with the efficacy all you want, but doing it is fine.04:38
hypatiaemma: please feel free to take up those feelings with the -irc list, or the IRCC04:38
emmaThe other thing I would like to know is the name(s) of the semi-secret and unlogged channels that you are using in lieu of this one.04:38
rwwemma: #ubuntu-irc-team. It's been named in logged IRCC meetings and in here, and is thus not semi-secret.04:39
rwwsorry, #ubuntu-ops-team.04:39
emmaMaybe Anastasius hasn't been banned from any of the secret ones and he could go there to find out why he's been banned from here.04:39
rww#ubuntu-ops-team is invite-only04:39
hypatiathat's not the purpose of the secondary, non-secret ones.04:39
hypatiathat's what the email list and ircc are for, emma04:39
hypatiaemma: we have a stated path for appeals. it doesn't include a choice of venue.  is that so hard to understand?04:40
emmayes I see well I think there may be some issues with forcing a regime of logging on all of us ordinary users in channels like #ubuntu but then deciding that unlogged channels are good enough for the elect.04:40
hypatiathat's nice.04:40
hypatiatake it up with the ircc04:40
emmaI would like to encourage all of you to think about the reasons why you thought an unlogged channel was good enough for yourselves and see if those reasons don't apply to someone like me also.04:40
hypatia#ubuntu-topic remains unlogged04:41
IdleOnethe semi secret channel is logged.04:41
hypatiawhich logged channels are you annoyed about, emma ?04:41
tonyyarussoI already thought about it.  Like 4 years ago when this first came up.  Oh, and then again about every 8 months since.04:41
emmahypatia: all of them.04:41
tonyyarussohypatia: Are you unfamiliar with this particular gripe from the past?04:41
rwwTo (hopefully objectively) clarify what IdleOne said, #ubuntu-ops-team is privately logged by ubottu (?) so the CC or IRCC have trustworthy logs to use in case of claims of problematic behavior.04:42
hypatiatonyyarusso: perhaps this iteration of it.  i was anti-logging of ubuntu-women when that was an issue, and pro- setting up ubuntu-women-project04:42
emmaIt is essential that people be given a fair voice because we have long ago established that the ubuntu-ops team frequently makes mistakes. That is not a shameful thing. You are humans.04:42
emmaelky is especially human.04:42
hypatiai am a robot :(04:42
hypatiaemma: WHY DO YOU HATE ROBOTS04:42
hypatiaanyway, i do get the argument for nto logging in some cases04:43
hypatiabut how can you possibly argue that #ubuntu shouldn't be logged? those logs come up all the time when looking for technical solutions to ubuntu problems04:43
emmaI would like you to unban Anastasius from this channel.04:43
IdleOneyou can forward the appeals link to them04:44
hypatiaemma: then please forward the appeals link to Anastasius04:44
hypatiaas is the standard operating procedure04:44
emmaAlso, Id like to invite any of you to hang out with us in ##club-ubuntu so that you can see for yourself the service we are providing the larger Ubuntu Community. That would be helpful so that you won't be a victim to the FUD that some of your especially human colleagues like to spread about us :)04:45
hypatiaemma: i hung out in there on your invitation a few years back.  has the rampant sexism and racism gotten any better?04:45
tonyyarussoTried that too, and the FUD is true.04:45
hypatiathat was my direct personal experience, not FUD, anyway04:45
hypatianice try though!04:46
hypatiaemma: it should probably be clear by this point that while i respect your right to free speech, that doesn't mean i have to listen to what you have to say.  your friend should take it up by the proper channels.  you're not going to get anywhere complaining on their behalf here.04:47
emmatonyyarusso - hypatia  see this is the interesting thing about perspectives. What you perceive as negativity I perceive as actually dealing with real people in authentic terms. Successfully doing that is at the heart of genuine communities.04:47
hypatiathat's nice, doesn't mean i want to hang out there.  see above comment.04:48
tonyyarussoWell, what you "perceive" is not how Ubuntu channels operate.  You have your channel, and it operates as it does, and Ubuntu channels operate they way they do, under drastically different values than yours.  Full stop.04:48
hypatiaand i didn't percieve it as "negativity", i perceived it as rampant sexism and racism.  please don't put words in my mouth, emma04:48
hypatiayour right to free speech lets you do that, but also lets me point out when that's not something i said :p04:49
emmahypatia: I fully respect that you are not the sort of person that would find ##club-ubuntu valuable. We are more a channel for the type of person who prefers living in the heart of the city rather than the well groomed security of the suburbs.04:49
hypatiaoh hum04:49
emmaIm glad there are lots of family friendly choices for people like you :)04:49
hypatiai live two minutes from the main station in the largest city in canada04:49
hypatianice try though!04:49
emmaSince Ubuntu is an OS for "all humanity" im also glad that ##club-ubuntu exists for people who like things less filtered :)04:49
hypatiawhich is now getting offtopic for -ops04:50
emmahypatia: right I live in NYC Ive visited Toronto. It has some nice streets.04:50
hypatiagot any more ops issues, emma ?04:50
emmahypatia: yes :)04:50
hypatialet's keep to those then, ok?04:50
tonyyarusso##club-ubuntu is not and never will be part of the Ubuntu community, as it does not follow the Ubuntu community's Code of Conduct.  Please don't pretend otherwise - it's not going to happen.04:50
emmaOh actually that's not true either. But that's not why I came in here.04:51
emmaSo I think I've been pretty clear that banning Anastasius from the channel where he's supposed to have a voice about op abuse is a mistake. It doesn't do any good for any of you and doesn't produce trust or good will.04:51
hypatiaah we're still on that04:52
emmasince most of you are good people I sincerely hope you will bring this up in your semi-secret channels for me.04:52
hypatiaemma: that discussion is basically over.  tell him to appeal it04:52
tonyyarussoThat's been addressed.  Is there a *different* issue you have?04:52
emmaYes. You should stop singling out people who hang out in ##club-ubuntu for special mistreatment. And you should stop logging all of the channels in the #ubuntu* name space as long as you are not logging your own operator channels.04:53
emmaWhatever reasons are good enough for your own privacy is good enough for the rest of us.04:53
IdleOnethe channel is logged.04:53
hypatiaemma: please send a message to the -irc list with your concerns04:53
emmaIf none of you have anything else that I can help you with I'm going to have to close this window because there are some channels that I do not allow to idle in my IRC client.04:54
hypatiaseems like we're at that point, emma04:54
emmatoodles :)04:54
hypatiathat is an excellent quit message.04:55

Tm_Tknome: normal banmask+$#channel12:08
Tm_Twithout the plus12:08
jussiThe suffix "$#channel" can be appended to any of the above bans masks to cause a user to be forwarded to #channel. The ban setter will only be able to set this ban if they are an op in #channel, or if #channel has channel mode +F set. In this case, in all situations where the user would previously have been told they could not join, they will instead join the channel named in the ban mask and be sent a 470 numeric describing the forward.12:08

ubottuFloodBot1 called the ops in #ubuntu-ops-monitor (repeated abuse from keyUp)12:34
emmaGood morning.12:57
emmaWhy did you need me to come here to tell me where the log to #ubuntu-ops-team is?12:57
ikoniaonly caught your last line in #ubuntu, so don't know what I missed/context12:57
ikoniaahh, you said #ubuntu-irc-team, I was going to tell you that's not a channel and find out what you actually wanted12:57
ikoniathat channel isn't publicly logged, its logged for COC complience and available to the community council and obviously irc council12:58
ikoniathat's why I asked you to join as I didn't know what you wanted with #ubuntu-irc-team not existing12:58
emmaOh I was told - in here - last night that there was a channel called #ubuntu-irc-team12:58
ikoniaah, must have been a mistake, no such channel,12:58
PiciThere is, but its not being used.12:58
ikoniathat's a better wording, it's empty12:59
Piciikonia: That was one of jussi's ideas that didn't really take off as planned.12:59
emmaI guess there is no way to know if it's being used unless a person trusts you or if it's logged.12:59
ikoniajoin it and see12:59
ikonia#ubuntu-irc-team is empty12:59
ikoniaI've just joined, and it's empty12:59
emmaOkay I tried joining #ubuntu-ops-team and it did not let me.12:59
ikoniaah, that's because it's for ops only13:00
jussiwe dropped -irc-team a good while back13:00
emmaAnd it's not publicly logged.13:00
ikoniasorry, I thought you meant #ubuntu-irc-team13:00
jussino, it isnt13:00
emmaAs you both know there are many people who find the history of public logging in the #ubuntu* namespace offensive to begin with.13:00
emmaIn the past one could at least say that the elect where holding themeslves to the same invasive standard.13:01
ikonianothing has changed13:01
emmaI urge those of you who have good will to think about the reasons you thought public logging was a bad idea for yourselves and figure out why those reasons are not also good enough for the rest of us.13:01
ikoniayou urged this last night13:01
emmaHave a good day.13:02
tsimpsonfor the record, the full reasoning is on the ML and in the team report13:08
ikoniakeyup was keyUp [~dejan@]13:58
ikoniadejan who is ban dodging13:58
sporkbombgood morning ... could someone brief me on why I am banned from #ubuntu?15:07
sporkbombI asked some ops in #freenode, and they said that there is a ban on all bshellz accounts?15:07
genii-aroundsporkbomb: That is correct15:09
ubottuSeveral Ubuntu channels prohibit access from open proxies and other anonymous connections due to a high level of abuse. The supported ways to hide your IP address on freenode are to use !Tor or get a !cloak15:09
sporkbombthat's a shame that others screw it up for the rest15:11
sporkbombgenii-around: thanks for the info15:11
* rww facepalms15:35
rwwI mentioned yesterday both that I typoed #ubuntu-ops-team as #ubuntu-irc-team and that #ubuntu-ops-team is not publicly logged. Meh.15:36
charlie-tcaIt's not a hidden channel, it just is not public, right15:37
rwwIt got mentioned in here, in #ubuntu-meeting, and on ubuntu-irc@lists. I'm not sure how it could be /more/ non-secret.15:38
rwws#/more/ non-#/less/ #15:39
mneptokif it's not hidden, why did i not know about it?15:56
mneptokno one ever asked me to idle on that channel. i never received e-mail about it ...15:57
tsimpsonthere were emails sent15:57
mneptok08:57 [Freenode] -ChanServ(ChanServ@services.)- Mode lock  : +s15:57
genii-aroundI think I recall something about it on #ubuntu-irc mailing list15:58
tsimpsonmneptok: you should already have an +I there15:59
tsimpsonmneptok: you should just be able to join it16:00
mneptoktsimpson: i have received no notification of any kind WRT that channel though16:01
tsimpsonare you subscribed to the IRC list?16:01
mneptoktsimpson: and "i propose" is not the same as "this channel exists, and you should /join it"16:02
tsimpsonand I'm sure it's been mentioned a few times in here too16:02
charlie-tcaHere is where discussions about it needing +i happened, if I recall right.16:07
tsimpsonyeah, but I added a +I on the nickserv account for everyone with +v in here16:23
tsimpsonmneptok: that message was just the first in the thread, it later says it was created and people with +v here are welcome to join16:39
tsimpsonit's not a requirement that you join, but we would recommend it16:39
tsimpsonit's not intended to be a replacement for -ops, this is still the primary channel where core ops should communicate16:40
PiciIdleOne: I don't think it belongs in offtopic either.  There are places to have that discussion and she has that information.17:38
PiciI don't have time at the moment to go back and forth with her (or anyone) about it though.  Work is busy enough.17:41

guntbertcan someone have a word with vaaginaa aka peeniss in #u ?21:30
emmaGood afternoon. It is nice to see that you didn't ban me from here also. I understand we are banning people from the channel made to report op abuse also now.22:05
emmaYou all have a lot of problems my friends and you are damaging yourselves with your choices.22:05
tsimpsonemma: if you can't talk sensibly, then why are you here?22:05
emmaWhich of my posts do you feel lacks sense?22:05
tsimpsonboth of the ones you posted here, just22:06
emmaApparently there are two ops channels. There's this one where I will be logged, and then there's the other one which I can neither join nor have any information about. But you want me to just trust you.22:06
tsimpsonwe discussed this at length, we even talked about respect22:07
tsimpsonyou show none22:07
tsimpsonyou actively abuse #ubuntu, and expect nothing to be done?22:07
emmaThats interesting because I absolutely feel I have been exceedingly respectful. I think the public log that is in effect on this channel bares that out.22:07
tsimpsonyou know the rules in #ubuntu well22:08
tsimpsonI know you do22:08
tsimpsonyou chose to disregard them22:08
emmaWhat Im curious about is what disrespectful things some of you may be saying about me, or the rest of us in your exclusive channel. Could you fill me in?22:08
tsimpsonthat is not respectful22:08
tsimpson#ubuntu is not a place for you to rant it22:08
tsimpsonit's for people seeking support for Ubuntu22:08
tsimpsonby disrupting that channel, you disrupt them22:09
tsimpsonthat is not fair on them22:09
emmaNo that's called caring a great deal about what is right. I am not your standard visitor here. I am not a poorly educated troll. I am an adult like you who cares about transparency and hypocrisy and the spirit of openness that I thought was supposed to exist in Ubuntu.22:09
emmaI fully respect and understand that for a group who has created an exclusive channel that no one else can observe, informing people in #ubuntu about what you are doing will feel llike a disruption.22:10
tsimpsonjust because you don't consider yourself a troll, don't mean you are above the channel rules22:10
tsimpsonyou don't respect the rules, clearly22:10
emmaThe 'rules' such as they are need to be made respectable. That, in part, comes from being created and enforced by a respectable regime. That depends on having authority that is legitimate. And you are undermining that with your own policies.22:11
hypatiathe rules seem pretty reasonable to me22:11
hypatiasaying they need to be "made respectable" implies that you have a perfect sense of what respectable is, emma22:12
hypatiahow do you know that's the case?22:12
tsimpsonemma: as you well know, if you don't agree with the channel rules, don't use the channel22:12
hypatiaalso, being polite and articulate in your opinions doesn't make you less of a troll.22:12
tsimpsonthis is not a new idea to you22:12
emmaTelling everyone else that they will be logged. And then using that log for kicking and banning. While you yourselves run off to an exclusive closed door hideout that no one can hold accountable is not the behaviour of legitimate authority it is the behaviour of a frightened gang.22:12
emmaYour policies are designed to create maximal group think.22:12
hypatiaemma: if you disagree with them so strongly, maybe this isn't the community for you?22:13
macoThe purpose of logging support channels is so that the helpful advice given can be found again later. The purpose of logging development and meeting channels is so that reasoning can be read later. The offtopic channels are unlogged because what goes on in them is of no use.22:13
LjLThe offtopic channels are unlogged because what goes on in them is of no use.22:13
emmahypatia: Sure I also respect that some people take the path of "quit when you don't like something" If that's you that's okay. But that's not me.22:13
LjL(whoops, mispaste)22:14
tsimpsonemma: did you ignore everything we talked about? did you completely ignore me?22:14
tsimpsonwere you just fobbing me off or something?22:14
emmaI think people who care about transparency and consistency should not just leave when they see something outrageous.22:14
hypatiayeah, i'd like to see your answers to tsimpson's questions, emma22:14
hypatiasorry to have interjected, tsimpson22:14
LjLemma: you, with your insistence, with your talking to people in PM until they get weary and then going in public (to troll #ubuntu or the like) showing the conversation was entirely useless and making everyone frustrated, is what encourages group think here, and has for years now.22:15
emmawell you see here is another thing that happens. When I come in here I am of course going to be logged. No doubt anything I say could be used against me for all time to come. And it will be me verous the whole lot of you as you circle the wagons and speak in unison since of course none of you ever make mistakes.22:15
tsimpsonyou say "closed door hideout that no one can hold accountable", I explained to you *several* times that is is logged and ops are held accountable22:15
emmaMeanwhile who knows what you are saying about me in the exclusive channel that none of us can monitor.22:15
macoemma: but the Community Council can monitor it. would you rather what's said in there be said in PM?22:15
emmaisn't that a beautiful system you have all created. You have ensured that no one can *ever* even in principle challenge any of you.22:15
hypatiaemma: how are you distinguishing between us just agreeing vs. "groupthink"?22:15
emmaWell done my friends. Well done.22:16
hypatiajust curious22:16
hypatiaactually, i don't really care, never mind.22:16
macoi mean, i guess we could go back to completely unlogged private messages...22:16
LjLor as i often suggested, op every op here, and use OMSG/ONOTICE ;)22:16
tsimpsonso you're not going to answer me emma?22:16
macothis seems more transparent though22:16
hypatiathis is such a waste of time.22:16
hypatiaemma: please answer tsimpson22:16
emmayes I respect that you feel I am a waste of time. That my concerns are  waste of time, and that transparency is a waste of time.22:17
tsimpsonyou are putting words in peoples mouths22:17
hypatiaemma: you are putting words in my mouth22:17
tsimpsonthat does not show respect22:17
hypatiaemma: i did not say that.22:17
emmaI'm glad you said that it was a waste of time in the channel that is logged rather than your exclusive channel where we can't know how you really feel.22:17
emmaHey guys it's very transparent for *You* and that's what matters right? After all you all are the "good guys" right?22:18
hypatialet me clarify, since it was apparently unclear: i think that arguing with you is like arguing with a brick wall, emma .  i'm actually a big fan of transparency! but i don't care about your angle on it at this point.22:18
tsimpsonemma: is there a point answering your questions?22:18
emmaYou *are* the community. And as long as you are not excluded then everyone is included. Right?22:18
emmatsimpson: ask a question that I can answer.22:18
hypatiaemma: go make your own sandbox.22:18
hypatiathis is boring.22:19
tsimpsonemma: I asked several, pick one22:19
hypatiascrollback is violating her freedom, apparently.22:19
tsimpsonhypatia: she already did22:19
emmahypatia: yes thank you for clarifying that I was putting words in your mouth when I said that you think my perspective is a waste of time by pointing out that what you were really saying is that my perspective is a waste of time.22:19
hypatiatsimpson: hah, good point.22:19
emmahypatia: and again, thank you for saying that in the channel that is logged.22:19
hypatiaemma: i'm happy to be quite public with my opinions of your antics.22:19
emmaGood, then we just need to hear from everyone else.22:20
hypatianot really.22:20
tsimpsonemma: display some respect and you may receive some22:20
emmaI have been exceedingly respectful.22:20
hypatiai mean, everyone else is free to talk about your antics, but i don't think it'll add much to the conversatiom22:20
tsimpsonemma: no you haven't22:20
LjLemma: no, trolling #Ubuntu is not respectful.22:20
hypatiaemma: you don't seem to be able to follow simple guidelines like not trolling #ubuntu22:20
emmaI was not trolling anything. I was making people aware of an injustice.22:21
macoemma: you were not on the topic of tech support22:21
tsimpsonwere your comments on topic for #ubuntu?22:21
macothat is a violation of the rules. period.22:21
tsimpsonwere they support questions?22:21
emmayes you have all jumped on that word now. I guess that settles it then.22:21
LjLyou were blatantly disregarding the rules you knew, emma. that is called trolling.22:21
hypatiayou know, i think it's just time to ban you for a chronic inability to grasp the CoC22:21
hypatiathis whole conversation is offtopic for here.22:21
emmahypatia: well that will also be met with nothing but support since that's what groupthink does.22:21
hypatiaemma: please leave.22:21
hypatiawahhhh groupthink22:22
tsimpsonemma: regardless of how you choose to label yourself, you actively decided to disregard the channel rules because you felt you were better than them22:22
hypatiagrow up.22:22
emmagroup think will be easier to foster now that you have an exclusive channel that no one else can see.22:22
tsimpsonthat is what a troll does22:22
* maco hands hypatia a cup of chamomile22:22
LjLemma: either you work within the rules, respecting the rules, and try to change them while respecting them, or otherwise you ignore them and attempt to make a revolution.22:22
LjLrevolutions aren't necessarily bad.22:22
LjLif you think this needs a revolution, feel free to try.22:22
macoemma: will you stop lying about who can see it? the Community Council has access22:22
LjLif not, then respect the rules.22:22
macothis has been said over and over22:22
emmaLjL: thanks :)22:22
macoso please, stop lying22:22
macoThe situation where the CC can review what is going on is heaps better than the prior situation, where everything was done in private messages with no review possible22:23
emmaIm not lying about anything and I think it's insulting for you to imply im a liar.22:23
macowhen you keep repeating the blatant falsehood that nobody but ops can see the logs, that is lying22:23
tsimpsonyou are either deliberately misleading people22:23
emmaYes because now we know that there will be no more PMs. What are you saying?22:23
tsimpsonor plain lying22:23
tsimpsoneither way, it's deception22:24
emmaI did not say that no one but ops can see the logs. I said that we cannot see the logs.22:24
macotsimpson: i call "deliberately misleading" "lying by omission"22:24
LjLi think maybe we should start logging both #ubuntu-ops-team and #ubuntu-offtopic22:24
maco<emma> group think will be easier to foster now that you have an exclusive channel that no one else can see.22:24
maco^ this was not you?22:24
hypatiaLjL: we do log ubuntu-ops-team22:24
LjLhypatia: yeah i meant publicly. i also log #ubuntu-offtopic privately :P22:24
emmamaco: you allow the elect to see the channel and the rest of us are to be kept in the dark.22:24
tsimpsonemma:  <emma> However the ubuntu ops have voted to make an exclusive channel that none of us can join, and they have voted that it will *not* be logged. Because they have voted they need privacy that none of us deserve.22:24
emmaI fully respect that for you that's just fine since you are on the inside.22:25
tsimpsonor misinformation22:25
tsimpsonlies basically22:25
hypatiahey folks22:25
emmaDo any of you care about being an inclusive community?22:25
hypatiawe're clearly arguing the same thing over and over22:25
hypatiaemma: you're not going to persuade anyone here.  please leave, and take this up with the IRCC if you must.22:25
emmathat is a fully accurate description of what you have done. It is revolting but it is accurate.22:25
macono it is not22:26
hypatiai care about not including trolls.22:26
macobecause the channel is logged22:26
hypatiaor racists, or sexists, ec22:26
macoit is at least 1% inaccurate for that reason22:26
emmait's logged but no one can see it.22:26
tsimpsonemma: no it's nto22:26
macoemma: the CC are "no one"?22:26
emmaThe CC are *you*22:26
macono we're not22:26
hypatiaemma: you seem to care about including those groups, i don't think this attitude is compatible with the community22:26
macoi am not a CC member22:26
hypatiai'm also not a CC member22:26
hypatianice try though!22:26
macothere are only ...what, 7 people on the CC?22:26
tsimpsonI too am not a CC member22:26
emmaI am not saying that any of you *are* the CC. I am saying that there is no reason to trust that the CC will be interested in ALL THE REST OF US and not just all of you.22:27
macohttps://launchpad.net/~communitycouncil/+members#active <-- that's the CC22:27
tsimpson<emma> The CC are *you*22:27
tsimpson<emma> I am not saying that any of you *are* the CC.22:27
* hypatia is done.22:27
tsimpsonwhich is it?22:27
emmaRight I guess we need to clarify our pronouns.22:27
LjL"we"? you do :)22:27
emmaI do not think that the CC is numerically identical to the Ubuntu Ops team. I am surprised this needs clarification.22:28
tsimpsonemma: if I disagree with your channel policies, I don't join your channel. if you disagree with our channel policies, don't join our channels22:28
macoemma: your first statement heavily implied that you did have that impression22:28
tsimpsonfwiw, I don't agree with your channel policies, which is why I don't join22:28
emmamaco: that is not my impression and never was, I'm sorry it came across that way.22:29
emmaI am fully aware that the CC are a different (small) group of human beings than your group of human beings. The "you" in my statement was an umbrella term for "the elite" the "privliged few". The "insiders", The "establishment'. that's all of you.22:29
emmaThe people who still get logged. That's me.22:29
emmathe people who don't get to see but just have to trust. That's me.22:30
LjLthen why not call us "ops", because that's what we are22:30
macothe CC is elected. if you find them untrustworthy, campaign for someone you trust to be elected next time22:30
emmaYou have all failed at being inclusive or open. I hope you change your minds before you damage your credibility.i22:30
tsimpsonemma: as I have stated before, your assumption that all ops are bad people is one I will not ever agree with22:30
LjLthe CC is a different thing, and so is the IRCC22:30
emmaYou all have a nice day.22:30
macois that 3-letter word allowed in ubuntu channels?22:32
LjLwhy not?22:32
charlie-tcahm, well, everyone has one22:32
hypatiamaco: i think it actually means donkey in that context22:32
tsimpsonthough I'm sure the choice of that particular word is intentional22:33
macohypatia: oh, work as in "beast of burden"?22:33
hypatiamaco: yup22:33
charlie-tcaand they are found in the desert of Nevada, at least22:33
maco(i dont tend to think of donkeys as having jobs :P)22:33
hypatiatsimpson: it's probably an Ayn Rand quote.22:33
rwwShould I bother reading any of that?22:41
hypatiarww: save your braincells22:43
genii-aroundReading The Fountainhead is a few hours of my life I'll never get back.22:50
charlie-tcaCan someone update the topic in #ubuntu+1. the beta1 is released.23:20
Picicharlie-tca: sure23:21
