It's not actually work related. It's about their opinions.

The author of the article isn't getting shit because she's a lead developer, she's getting shit because she writes articles on gender equality in gaming. Her example persons are also having some female-centric activities.

If I write a gaming opinion piece called "Mens world: why game devs should ignore all whining women and focus on their main demographic" I'd also get a lot of angry mail and spiteful messages. If I write a followup article after such hatemail called "Ruling elite: how a small minority of females with an interest in games try to hijack the industry and suppress dissident opinon" I'd get even more shit heaped onto me.

Is this a sign that I'm harassed because my gender? Is it a sign that the gaming demographic is full of bad persons? Or is it a sign that inflammatory opinion pieces will always result in hatemail?

Anyone prone to willfull abuse will use CWE and get rid of the acetaminophen. Some elderly person getting addicted will instead kill itself.
Drug prescription rules and opinions about drugs are hyped the fuck up and retarded, there's several completely safe drugs that's prescription only and some pretty awful ones that's free for everyone.

If I need 100GW of coal power at 5% of capacity, can I build only 5% of the coal plants? Will the coal plants have only 5% the running cost?
This is the problem of intermittent power sources, they end up requiring almost the same amount of conventional backup energy sources as if they didn't exist in the first place, so from an economic point of view they're a terrible choice because they're by no means cheap either.

Running a coal plant at loss doesn't happen when it's a private actor behind it. Either the energy from coal is more expensive to cover for less uptime, or they shut it down and move. I know Germany tries to put itself into a position as saviour of the world and to prove that green energy is best energy but reality doesn't agree.
