I would have preferred that not be done precipitously, without allowing 
time for discussion. This is what, a two-day-old list, and a few men 
have bitched about reverse discrimination, so oh too bad, let's toss the 
women off the island??? "Peace of the community???' Bullshit. Several 
men have supported the idea of a closed list. At least one woman (me) 
has suggested opening the list. What about the peace of mind of women 
contributors, to have a safe place to discuss issues? Oh, that's a 
"women's topic" so its irrelevant? No. I don't think so. Its a pity this 
was not discussed in any greater detail, rather than being (like so many 
of the concerns which *led* to this list) being summarily dismissed. I 
also find it telling that the /women's/ concerns were ridiculed and 
dismissed as invalid, yet the /men's/ concerns led to almost immediate 
action. How sadly typical.
