    Everyone here's a dude unless proven otherwise, so far as I'm concerned. I think Prelude's the only lady.

    Ask them to specify it in general discussion board.

    You didn't read Todd's post ?
    Manly man. Arrrrrgh. (just in case "Todd" wasn't clear enough.)

    I think I know where you are going with this, and I'm pretty sure Elysia is female!!
    And yeah, there is username "Aia" who has a beautiful girl's avatar. So IMO, there are 3 girls, 1Obait-Ku (CornedBee) and (n-4) boys.

    I think todd is a woman in disguise and Elysia is a bot

    Edit: and twomers is a very smart cocker spaniel and Prelude is not a lady because she scares me.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I don't think a bot can enter forums bcoz while signing up, they tell you to "see" a random image and write the alphabets in a box ( A4GRL, something like that). That is to prevent automated registration by bots.

    some bots are very smart. And then there's AI and stuff.

    Ok, here's proof. I'm the tall one (in the front - not the comb-over geek to the back left). Smart and handsome, and a babe for a wife!

    Wow. That spared me putting up my photo.

    I'm just like the comb-over geek.

    abk C/C++ has almost no female programmers. so don't worry the 0.00001% (if they exist) !
    and if you really wanna see female programmers join a python board

    I almost HATE Hritik Roshan.
    But I love Shahrukh Khan! I am a MALE!

    Huh?

    Only on the same floor with me are sitting more than 5 "female C/C++ programmers". And the building has 11 floors... And this is not a single High-Tech building in the district...

    Hard to beleive you...
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Look close enough, there should be 50000 "male C/C++ programmers"
    And it's just that your place happens to have some "female C/C++ programmers", otherwise to prove my point, just take the fraction from the board members.
    The board members are not localized, they represent a broader, world wide, view.

    You will also come to the same conclusion. 0.00001%
