I hesitate to post my opinion on this subject. But, I really think
that you're being too tough on Dan. If I remember correctly, his
original message was to someone who didn't seem to understand why
neutral pronouns are preferable to non-neutral pronouns. That is
"relevant subject matter" for a Tech Writers discussion list. It seems
only fair that he then be allowed to respond to flames from people who
didn't share his opinion.

You're welcome to get a kick out of Mike's post, Beth. As you can
probably guess, I didn't. Dealing with the flaming that erupted in response
to my message has'nt been pleasant. For me, however, keeping silence when
someone demeans and insults others is even less pleasant.

Having a positive image of one's self and taking pride in
one's makeup does NOT in any way demean another. This is a
Tech Writers discussion list, Dan. Can you please restrict
your posts here to relevant subject matter and take your
political and socio-economic babble to a different forum?
