LOL – you really have to laugh at this piece of PC insanity:

The British Ruby Conference has been cancelled, after a row started over allegations the speaker roster at the conference is insufficiently diverse.  The controversy eventually became too much for organisers, who have cancelled the event.

OMG.  And what was the problem?   That the speaker roster, based on merit rather than PC quotas, had all white males.   That should actually tell them something about the insanity of PC quotas but I bet it won’t.

Ah yes, silly me. Here I was thinking this was about talent and experience and all along it was that under half can have tadgers and over half must have vajazzlers.

Who can find a virtuous woman?   For her price is far above rubies.

And as for the technical side, an unnamed techie opined: “Wonder why nobody uses Ruby for serious work?”

    The organisers were quite right to cancel the conference, given that they were not able to put on the best possible event under the circumstances. If only other organisations had similar balls.

    You might think it funny but I feel seriously demeaned by your demands upon Ruby and so does he/she given your homophobic assumptions about his/her sexuality.

    Luckily for you I have some spare tickets for “Gender Politics & Is The Penis Worth It?”

    You would be well advised to attend.
