All Sailnet Female Members
 
Even if you do not often (or ever) reply to threads here, I would apprecaite your thoughts. THis is no time to be shy.

We are trying to decide whether or not to make HerSailnet a female only forum... of do you even care? We can maintain the policy of either females only, or the policy of carefully moderated posts should men wish to participate.

I honestly do not care either way. The difficulty, of course, is that we cannot tell for sure who is or who is not a female (this is the internet). However, on most/many members, we have a pretty good idea.

So, the question really is not what I want, but what you want. We will dictate and manage the forum as such.

We apprecaite your participation here and really want to make it place that encourages you to participate and feel like you can ask, respond, or discuss matters without fear of inappropriate comments, etc.

Please tell me what YOU want.

Thanks.

- CD

Let me in on a little story that I witnessed in New York in 2002.

I did consulting for this very very very large corporation...

One day, a manager, that happened to be (man I am even affarid to say, because I don't know what is correct or not in the US anymore), African American, and I were working together...

He had a frame in his office...it said something like he was the President of the XXXX CORPORATION BLACK MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION....

I saw that and it di not get registered in my mind...

A week later, I asked him, what it was and who was the leader of the White Management Association....

They didn't have one...it's not political correct....

So my question to you is....are we going to have a MANS FORUM also???

Isn't this what you guys talk a lot here that is happening to the US???

I will never get it....

My take is that this forum may be a place to pose questions more of "interest" to female members than "only females can reply." I personally would welcome respectful comments from guys - I'll take knowledge whereever I can find it. Other opinions?

Absolutely right...

man should know how to behave in the presence of ladies..If they don't they should be told so...it's in the end a question of sociological education...

I can't believe CD's even considering this - or that he recently deleted Hersailnet forum posts made by guys, who clearly were not being rude or insulting. This action actually drove one member to leave - requesting all identity to be erased.

I ask again, where has it been stated that guys should refrain from posting in hersailnet, and if this has always been the intent, what action inspired this segregation?

BTW, I've seen attempts at this on other forums, with very negative results.

I concur. I think of the herSailnet forum as a "topic category" not a gender category. Leave as is.:)

One question....can I photoshop here????:D :D :D

Giu - did you catch the "respectful" part? I doubt you'd be able to restrain yourself effectively.

For what it's worth I agree with Chuckles and TB on this.

Eryka...if you knew me for real, you would immediately see that I am trully 100% respectfull for ladies...I swear I am...you can ask anyone here that has been with me..

My photoshoping, never ever offended or was aimed at ladies, with the exception of DJ, but she asked for it..

I did have once an "occurence" with a lady here, triggered by a loser with multiple sign ons, but in reality, what this lady did was not fare..

She kicked me bellow the belt, offended me, and attacked me as if she was a man...so I figured...'you beat me like a man...I will beat you like a man too"...

I later appologized after CD asked me to tone down...I was played unfair in that deal and it satyed there...she left, thank God...

By the way..this is my only female oriented photoshop...like I said, as per her request, in in an appropriate context...
