My mistake, I thought you were commenting about this list, not the pd
I see that post now, thank you for addressing my question. I don't see eye
to eye with you on this. I'm not sure there's cause and effect between
someone referring to Christiaan Huygens having wet dreams and there being a
greater number of men than women on this list; and if there is, I suspect
the demographic imbalance is more cause than effect. I could be wrong, but
I'm not ready to join the crusade. On the other hand I'm more than ready to
refrain from posting vulgarities myself.
This is one of the most benign, tolerant free software forums I've found.
