Ada has been a pretty toxic member of the infosec community.  Their stupid
harassment cards at defcon were annoying, but the violet blue incident is
but one of several incidents of manufacturing drama for PR.  that sort of
behavior is unacceptable in our community.  And as you said... ada is a
small org.  2 people.  so i don't see the culture of ada ever changing.
I'd rather people invested in the gnome outreach program for women.
