Come on, Dr. Kaye; do you really want to be as exclusionary as implied
by your response?  If someone wants to be included in discussions
germane to women in bio, should we be so bold to hold sex as a discriminant
for participation?

If that is true, perhaps I don't qualify to post here, either...I am a chemist
by degree, and I perform research in a field that has bio connections
but not, per se, bio.  (Environmental science and engineering) 

I am presuming that troublemakers on the bulletin board will be exorcised
by several ways....having the group ignor them; sufficient flames; moderator
(if there is one) intervention.

what do others who participate in this group feel? 

thanks for letting me air my views on this.
