I know, but it gets my goat! Besides, now there's no Conservatory I guess I can go with no sanctions
i don't think dixiegal was trying to be sexist or derogatory, bilbo. in fact her post is one example of why the conservatory was not working well for the community ; it seemed closed and somewhat hostile or unwelcoming to many people for various reasons. if a forum is creating an impression of intimidation among a large portion of the members, that's a sign that it's not good for the community overall. and of course, that very fact is part of what led many people to speak up via pm and not publicly, because they felt too intimidated to say their thoughts publicly.
