I bow to my master. I didn't realize what was happening untill the next sentence:
There's legit concern that tech is run-amok with 'brogrammers' that make women programmers feel unwelcome.
During my soon 20 year carreer in IT, I've not met such a 'brogrammer'. Not once. They are really scarce, I find.
And why? Because it looks unprofessional. If the README is full of jokes, the most likely explanation is that this is because the code is full of shit. One, perhaps two dick-jokes in the README, and my BS detector might not beep. But as it is now, I would not want to touch DICSS.
Just to put this in context, I am an completely average instantiation of the 'male programmer' stereotype. (white, hetero, soon-to-be middle-aged). And I did find the DICSS README funny.
