I was replying to someone who blatantly made stuff up. I thought I made the target of my "making stuff up" comment pretty clear, but you're putting it in a different context (it does apply to a wider context, but not as wide as where you put it).
Then you criticised me for "telling [women] that they're wrong to be offended", which I didn't say at all. Now, when I say the summit could be helpful, you complain that the issue won't "magically get rectified by the existence of a summit" - I never said it would!
Do you think misrepresenting people and making careless accusations is a way to make a gender inclusive forum? I don't think a vague joke by rms is the only problem here. Not by a long shot.
