The characterization of my mainstreaming suggestion as "dumb-down

contributed significantly to my impression that you were trying to
make a target out of me. Just so there is no lack of clarity on this
point, I'm opposed to "dumbing down" in general and the idea that
anything would need to be made _dumb_ to attract Women is completely
unsupported by any information that I've seen. Making things more
attractive to typical people doesn't mean making them dumber.
As a passive reader of this thread, I'd like to come to both of your
Greg, I don't think anyone was reading your thread with that as the
implication. I certainly didn't take it that way, and I don't think Ryan
did. He was making a supplemental point of the issue. No big deal, both
posts are well thought out and while slightly contrary in nature, have the
same end point.
