HerSailnet...Ground Rules
 
This is a thread that is primarily BY and FOR the female members of Sailnet where they can post and share questions and concerns with others in an adult and rational way. It is not:
1. A place for the men of sailnet to post "want ads"
2. A place where conversation, language and content will be permitted to degenerate into "locker room" standards that may be acceptable in the off topic forum.

Moderators will manage this sub-forum more aggressively and delete posts and threads that do not meet this higher standard as we try to carve out a more female friendly place within Sailnet.
We encourage our female members to find a home here and to report any posts you find objectionable using the "report post" icon in the top right corner of each message.
Thanks in advance to all for your cooperation.

Well said Cam... :D

:confused: I'm very much of two minds about this - I appreciate the spirit in which it was meant, and at the same time hope I'm strong enough to take care of myself out there in the big world...

Other opinions?

I have the same ambivalence about "women-only" sailing instruction, but perhaps that's fodder for a separate thread.

Eryka...I KNOW you can take care of yourself! (g) ...but others have been put off by the "boys club" atmosphere (which I cherish!) throughout sailnet and wanted a place where things were a bit more, shall we say, refined. It is not too much to carve out a small section of the site where we try a bit harder to be gentlemen and where the ladies of sailnet can gather to address their own concerns. See you on "off topic"!! (g)

Fair point - perhaps we should create a forum for 'class acts only'? :D of either gender?

BTW and speaking of class acts, we were dinghying up Back Creek the other evening and saw sunlight glinting off a certain gold boat name on a dark-hulled stern. Unfortunately it still had a broker's "For Sale" sign on it and not a "Sold" sign - how's that going?

Then I would only get to talk to myself... and where would SD get all his posts? You have to think reality!! HAHA!

- CD

PS I am 110% behind the post. I feel there should be a place where females can gather and speak frankly with each other without our influence. Just my support, Cam.

I'd come by to keep you from being lonely, if I could pass the entrance requirements ;)

Cam, I certainly didn't mean to diminish your intent, and think 'off-topic' is the appropriate place to be rude and crude - even Giu's sometimes awful photoshops. But IMHO, we could/should try to be somewhat civilized in all the rest of the site. Guess I need to live in the same reality CD mentioned. <*sigh*>

sailingdog 10-02-2007 11:49 AM

Eryka-

CD doesn't live in reality... he's obviously delusional... especially if he thinks that he'd pass the entrance standards Cam has set. :D

maybe its the nyquil hangover <*grin*>
