In Response to Re: Lack of Women Posting in the Political Forums
[QUOTE]Women have better things to do with their time. Posting on a message board all day is dumb. The fact there are few women in the politics forum speaks well of them, dont you think? By the way how do you know whether a poster is male or female? The overwhelming majority of users on this board provide no information regarding gender on their profile page, including you PS You dont need permission to file an abuse report. If your fellow posters think you are lame for filing one, or if they put pressure on you not to, what difference does it make? TS for them. Be a snitch if you want to. There's nothing stopping you...

Your rather hostile response is perplexing. You yourself have acquired over 1600 forum posts. Difference being your posts were in other forums. As for your woman have better things to do with their time. I myself am a lawyer with a husband and a family. That alone, among other things I am, gives me plenty to do "with my time" AcheNot.
So, when you say posting on a message board all day is dumb, first, I never said anyone should aspire to that. Second, you yourself have quite obviously spent a great deal of time posting in the forums. I am sure you feel your topics were important, but to dismiss general, national and world politics as something "dumb" to spend one's time commenting upon seems on its face hard to justify.
As for be a "snitch" in your parlance, I went to your profile page as well, and right there on page one, you had a Forum post that "outed" a Ms.X, shall we say, as the one behind taking someone else's thread down. I made a reply to it.
If you had any high ground, you certainly lost it and then some with that type of commentary behavior.
In any case, thank you for your feedback. And no, I can see, you would never fit in in any of the political forums, in my opinion.
