Re: attention net-grrls
A time came when I wondered if my unease at being referred to by my coworkers as "knowing some things .. but not much" was justified. I searched out some lists for 'women in tech' - no answers there, but a hella lot of crummy recipes ... And the attitude follows me still to a new job, and by the time they discover that I'm actually a valuable resource I'm so disgusted by the comparatively rotten regard that it becomes yet another unhappiness. There are numerous other war stories, but suffice to say that if there's a chance that a somewhat serious forum is forming along those lines ... I doubt I'd consider it if I'd not seen it here.

I don't want to start a flamewar here, and I don't really care that much myself, but I'd just like to point out that if anyone started a "men in networking" list, they'd be immediately flamed and lambasted by people of both sexes.
Agreed 100%. I can't speak for the list owners, but I'd think that was absurd if there was a concentrated effort to deny subscribers of any kind. However, gripes about women's issues on this list would not be tolerated, nor should they. Perhaps the listowner/s had this in mind? - danielle
