I'm pissed. Why is this incident still causing a rift!?!
Also, I guess I had a false memory of Matt resigning from this group,
because from its webpage, it seems he is still part of its leadership.
Is this group now dead? I don't see much activity on mailing list. If
the group is dead, it should be torn down. We need action to help bury
#porngate so that it does not continue to be a black mark on the
community and fuel this (arguably false, yet pervasive) view that the
Rails community is against women.

Because there will always be those who exploit and or focus on negatives. Seldom are there people that can see both sides with true empathy and not cast negatives on both. My advice is to move on and try to step right and not get sucked into this to much.
Meanwhile, perhaps people on this list are either busy coding on work and or helping this movement by testing and committing patches to core and other projects – or doing what I see is successful advocacy that does not require a full on discussion. Heck, maybe it's warm outside, but imho ruby/rails conferences and groups seem to be doing just fine right about now. Here locally and abroad.

Lets get back to work!
Thanks for chiming in. I've reached out to Matt via email just now and
plan to take a step back away from the issue. Just felt it important
to let you know what is being said out there. I was very embarrassed
about the way the matter was presented at RubyConf India.
