some general thoughts:

a) As is clearly noted at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Social_Channel_FAQ the #fedora-social channel sometimes has strong language. We could of course revisit this, but many people prefer being free to say whatever they feel without having to self moderate in social situations. We could perhaps add that note to a join message to make it more clear...

b) It seems this escalated when folks inquired what things you found offensive. A simple answer with the words you dislike or the like should have sufficed.

c) For the social channel, I'd personally advise using /ignore on people who offend or bother you. Or using another channel for social interaction.

d) finally, remember... Not only does someone have to give offense, but you have to accept it too. Simply ignoring or not letting people's words bother you can get you pretty far in life.

I'm sure we will discuss this at our next meeting.

Thanks for the feedback.
