Hey!!!! I've got an idea!!!!! How's 'bout if'n Mike just removes the little gender icon and we go about our posts w/o knowin' if the other posters are male, female or any combination thereof!!!!
After all, we don't have indicators for race, religion, nationality or any other demographic indicator.

Spoken like a true man! I agree but the cat is out of the bag on some already and since I do most of my reading through the quick view, I don't see the icon. User id's such as Cathy, Dave, Nuke Mom, and Camella are a give aways.

I agree with you guys on the nongender idea.  Great point.  My question...why is the best restaurants..beaches..etc. at sites been moved to the GM area?  Is this a recruiting scheme?

Although off topic I will answer the question. No, it is not a recruiting scheme. It is an attempt to keep the site clean and neat. This cleanup was my idea but was approved by Mike and Tom. I will pass along your concerns.

I know that having my own opinion on this colors what I see so if I've missed something please keep that in mind. 

I don't see this as a pitch toward any form of "affirmative action" for Nukeworker.  Camella and I have had this discussion via IM's for many months.  Sometimes this type of behind the scenes discussion leads to changes, sometimes it doesn't.  Sometimes it leads to something being run up the flagpole to see what everyone thinks.  What the original discussion was centered around was what we could do to encourage more female posting and whether or not we even needed to do anything. 

My opinion was and remains that I think we need more female input here.  I don't think we need this to prove our "diversity" , fill any supposed quotas or anything along those lines.  Not to get into any GM type of discussion on it here, but men and women are different.  Anything that encourages more PEOPLE ($1 to Red Hacker) to post here is good.  I don't believe the suggestion was whether or not we need any Female Only areas either.

I'd also like to see more young people post here to get their questions answered rather than just lurking or not even asking their question.  A great example is the thread that PapaBear 765 started asking questions about the commercial industry. 

I guess my main point is not to read more into this than their really is and please continue to give us input.  It's the only way we can continue to improve the site.

Kudos.....
It never really matters to me whether someone is male or female. I usually don't get into the heated discussions although I do read some of them and LMAO. It's just not my thing to talk politics or religion.

As for men calling me a bitch! Bring it on...They don't call me the Hatch Bitch for nothin! 

How bout instead of putting male or female as our sex, we could put either YES/NO... Just a thought.

When I read posts such as this, I know why you are the lead moderator. We all could take a few lesson from you, myself most definitely included. This is what I should have said and could not find the word. Thank you Tom.

Glad to hear Di is a goldmember. She always looked good in gold (and anything else).

As for more women posting, I'm all for it. Since this is a male dominated industry, we could use all the personal help we can get. Start threads that women are interested in participating in.

"What women want nukeworkers to know"
"Things mothers should have taught their nukeworkers"
"Best nukeworker fashions of 2008"
"What not to say to a lady nukeworker"

Invite the ladies to help us better ourselves. Di always gave great advice.

How about accessories to the outfit?
A folding mini knife on your lanyard.
A pen and coordinating sharpie on the same lanyard.
And while I am talking about fashion-
They need to make Orex in colors, everybody knows you don't wear white after Labor day.  ;D

hey Henry makes lanyards in almost any color you could ask for; check your site and see if they are okay. they are made out of plastic lacing with a break away/safety catch.

I love the idea of women's stuff too!
