An open letter to the security community

Your community appears to be a disaster. I’ve already read about the following happening in your community/conferences:

I can only conclude you don’t want to be welcoming to new users.

And so I don’t participate. Congratulations. You’ve built a community so unwelcoming that otherwise interested developers won’t be a part of it.

Friends of mine in the security community: I beg of you, don’t enable this by continuing to attend events like this. Don’t validate this behavior with your participation.

Security community, fix your shit.
