We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Ah, now things are clearer, jma. I'm thinking BD doesn't really care as he only has to please one or two women as this blog does not always deal kindly with the female members of our species. Why he can't even be bothered with giving a simple yes or no answer as to the possible banning of certain female contributors here.
Thanks, jma, I'm glad we got that sorted out. Of course Meta deserves an answer, that would be the gentlemanly thing to do. Not only yes or no, buy why. That would just be common human decency as a way to treat someone like Meta who has been here for three or more years and has contributed so much in the way of intellect, wit and humor to comments here, especially and mostly as she had her privacy violated by by use of the email she uses to log in here
