Re: This needs to stop

most "solutions" involve some form of 'AFFIRMATIVE ACTION' which is quota-based REVERSE discrimination, which punishes people of "the wrong sex/race" using a non-merit-based selection method.

So I agree with you, that SOLUTIONS would NOT do this. However, I disagree with the premise that they (the PHP conference promoters) have NOT been "inclusive". I suggest PROVING that discrimination existed in the FIRST place. I _SERIOUSLY_ doubt it.
