The problem with enumerating rules and policies is that hackers will always
ALWAYS go out of their way to test those rules.  You create rules, we will
fuck with you.  That's what we do.

You don't create culture with a checklist.  Culture is created by the
people who are already there.

If you like your culture, keep the people who are there and welcome people
who want to be a part of that culture.  If you don't like your culture then
maybe you should find another pool to swim in.

Also, Al - I think you did Matt a disservice when you paraphrased him
poorly by suggesting that he wanted only white, het, male geeks.

He said no such thing.
