Well, I am gaa6926 thanks to the powers that be in U.S.L.'s computing center.
I've found that not all of the electronic communications I receive have a real
name in the header. Without a signature, there is at least the possibility of
genderless communications.

What I find most appealing about e-mail, net news, and so forth is that
I can enter intelectual converstations with only my intelect. I can argue
issues and be judged only by what I write. There is no consideration of my
age, the length of my hair, or other irrelevant issues. What I write is
judged as writing and ideas, and nothing else.

BTW, I have an undergraduate degree in applied science (computer science and
math) and I am working on a master's degree in rhetoric. I worked for
three years as a technical writer, doing mostly software documentation.
I've worked as a programmer and my assistantship duties include PC repair
and sundry other electronic chores.
