I believe issues relating to pornography are germane to a list discussing the gender gap, and I'm happy to be informed about them (as with Andreas' initial post) on this list. It's one of the reasons I subscribe to this list.

Laura, if there was consensus around a different point of view at your conference, that's fine; but it's not binding on anybody who wasn't part of that consensus.

In the mean time, please stop dismissing us and discounting our opinions.

Laura, I think you're hearing things I didn't say. I'm not dismissing anybody's opinions; I am very interested, in fact, in what was discussed and what the outcomes were from the WikiWomenCamp.

My point is this, and this only: I think if members of this list feel there are issues worth bringing up, relating to pornography on Wikipedia, that it's within the remit of the list. It's the sort of thing I'm here to hear about.

I don't know that it's a primary reason; and I don't think Andreas said it is. I don't believe it has to be a primary reason to be worthy of mention.

That's all I have to say about it -- I don't have anything to add to what Andreas said, or to what you said. I just want to assert that in my opinion, it's reasonable for Andreas to bring up this topic on this list.
