Audience participation: rate the sexism!

(repost due to failure of link the first time out)

So, which of the following linked quotes are the most offensively sexist and simultaneously evocative of the general state of the worst parts of greater geek culture, and particularly the Free/Libre Open Source Software bits?

If you have a worse one, go ahead and leave it in the comments. It needn't necessarily be from qdb.us, but it should be from some major qdb.

(LJ readers, this poll is part of my preparations for a meta-essay about Dreamwidth development culture. Participate if you feel like it.)

Crossposted. comment count unavailable comments.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
