    We need to think about the message @github's response to @nrrrdcore sends to other women in tech: blog.ellenchisa.com/2014/04/22/im-… (hint: it's scary).

    2 / This doesn't mean people at Github are bad people. We don't know how they feel as individuals. It's probably a bad week for them.

    3 / So if you have friends at Github - talk to them and try to be supportive if you can. From personal experience...

    4/ kickstarter.com/blog/we-were-w… was a bad week for me. Very few people reached out, many wrote mean things publicly.

    5 / this is also not a commentary on @pmarca in particular! it's about the sort of fear these situations create.

  4. @pmarca ah hm. I meant more of - I bet you did this to be supportive of founders, but it sends this additional message to me. (1/2)

    @pmarca assume you didn't mean for it to have that affect on me, stuff like that happens - not you are the only one who has done it. (2/2)

  6. @pmarca So: I meant for it to be about the larger issue, not about you. But yes, I used something you said to show what I meant.

  8. @pmarca That wasn't my intent. My intent is, and was last night, to share the *fear* that this creates for women.

  9. @ellenchisa you're brave to do so, and know that you have many of us who support you for speaking up.

  10. .@pmarca you’re proving the point of her post—that speaking out will be met with hostility and silencing—by being outright hostile to her.

    .@pmarca you and @paulg seem to focus on being wrongly perceived as bad guys when what ppl want is accountability for abusive founders

    .@pmarca you don’t have to disown anyone, but championing one who *left bc of alleged abuses* sends a disturbing msg to ppl enduring abuse
