In that case you have obviously not bothered to read any of the
earlier emails. Your blanket denials come across as sweeping the
problem under the carpet and it isnt helping, especially when pleia
has apologised and I accepted it and left it at that. With regards to
the claim that we are not "meeting users needs" you have not explained
which need is not being fullfilled because in the past 8 hours this
list has 6 unsubs from women, and furthermore I have an admin who is
blaming herself for this whole fiasco - Do you even realise the number
of women that are being alienated here? How are these two situations
helping the goals of UW? My apologies for asking this but it bothers
me (a lot) that a project that is meant to encourage women is
alienating the very user base it is targeting.
