"Big Dongle" Jokes Get Everyone Fired

You'd better think twice about making "big dongle" jokes in public, you might get fired. You also might want to avoid complaining publicly on Twitter about someone making a "big dongle" joke, you might get fired too. eek!

At least it appears that’s what happened with PyCon this week when a sexual joke led to some very public firings, a virulent debate about women in technology, another virulent debate about public shaming, and now, a DDOS attack.
