Response and Apology for Sexist Jokes




Some Notepad++ users pointed out several links in reddit to me, these threads were talking about some sexist jokes included as easter eggs in Notepad++:
http://www.reddit.com/r/TwoXChromosomes/comments/27eg8r/oc_sexism_in_tech_an_example/ http://www.reddit.com/r/girlsgonewired/comments/27ehbx/sexism_in_tech_an_example/

I don't consider myself as a sexist person, and believe me, I hate sexist people. But after reading it again, I can see there are indeed some jokes of poor taste, I have to admit that they are sexist. I am sorry for including such inappropriate content in Notepad++. All the sexist jokes will be removed from the next release and such jokes will never be in Notepad++ binary.
