True that, Paul. Although, come to think of it, what a great companion to have, someone who shares your interests . . .

At least they don't accompany their postings with highly edited
personal photos ala Circuit City TV commercial. Or was it Best Buy?
Then the boys would be writing books in answer to their questions.

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?
