Here’s a member of the dev team behind the fantastic  Dungeons of Dredmor shutting down a “get to the kitchen!” joker (read: asshole) on the game’s forums, as detailed here by Tiffany Martin. (Who, it should be noted, is among the badassest of gamers; she beat DoD with the most difficult possible setup when I can’t manage to get through a single playthrough.)
It’s a pretty great look at a single incident of sexism and properly handling it in gaming communities. Temporarily ban the guy as a slap on the wrist with a healthy dose of public shame and calling out this sort of action, all the while playing up women as a proper part of the community.
It’s a fairly beautiful thing.
