Re: Sexist Forum?

I would hardly consider a discussion of the operating tendencies of this NG to be a waste of bandwidth . . .

A topic designed to waste bandwidth on matters other than the

before going beddy bye every night?

I believe I am noticing a sexist trend in this NG. To wit, when a
female (or someone with a feminine pen) posts a message,
interesting or not, she ends up with a flood of replies, most of
which are overly elaborate. On the other hand, when a male posts,
unless the question is of great interest, it goes largely
unnoticed. Is this a "Damsel in Distress" syndrome, or are my
observations without merit?
