The argument which you did mention is IMO the mean reason why not
only others of your gender stay away, but also the reason why many of
my gender unsubscribe in the end I suppose.
I had a few contacts outside this list (fellow countrymen) who asked me
a lot of questions about this list, and the one thing they all remerbered
was the continue way of impolite and rude behavior.
Maybe you and your fellow gender- members ought to be take more
part in the discussion as such, maybe in the presence of woman we
would be lesser agressive... !?
( I am, because we are) in the very early stages of our life all " woman "
