there appears to be a deep resentment by some male calgunners that they have to abide by the Ladies Forum rules or get called on their "attidude" [misspelling deliberate]. if those persons would either abide by the rules or learn to refrain from being jerks, there wouldn't be a problem.
there are some male calgunners that bring a lot to the table and interact appropriately. i'd hate to have them not participating.
and there are some that usually do ok but just do not realize that women are looking for support from other women [olive's thread comes to mind] and end up making this a place where women no longer feel they can come to complain. not sure what the cure is for that.
i admit to having mixed feelings but only because some of the men think they can come in and not be polite and/or follow the rules.
