In positive discrimination, I meant that smaller group (in this case 
women) have right to chose separate topic that is related to their 
interest never less  regarding opinion of majority (in this case 
mans).So numbers should not be counted here. This is just a reality that 
one (sub)group exist inside community.
 If one topic(mailing list) exist there that is not of concern of some 
other group why is should not be there? Because it is not interesting to 
majority? I think it is best for community to build inside subgroups 
instead that groups build their communication outside of community (e.g. 
google groups, yahoo groups,...). That looks to me more like tearing 
apart that to build inside community an mailing list - it is more like

projects, as they will find comfort and help in this sub group-mailing 

Also thank you for Idea we will try to use this as model for our
