Sam Ruby has posted a note about the upcoming Applied XML Conference put on by Chris Sells.

When I looked at the agenda and realized that the conference managed to put together two days worth of presentations without one woman speaker, I was moved to note in comments at Sam’s:

For entertainment, is the conference going to bring in strippers and see if they validate?

Personally, I thought it was funny. Sam didn’t and pulled the comment. Isn’t this environment a tough one when it comes to figuring out what each sex considers objectionable?


Sam left a comment saying he didn’t delete my comment. My mistake, Sam, sorry for saying you did.

So does this mean you think this comment is funny after all?
