Midlander - thank you for being so open with us, it's good to have you back in freemasonry, I hope you are gaining as much from your membership as you did last time round.
If you are ever in London and it co-incides with a lodge meeting I would be happy to welcome you as my guest.
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
Midlander, to get back on topic it has been suggested by my wife that women do not use computers in the same way as men do, we are quite happy to spend hours looking here and there, posting on sites and, according to my wife, achieving nothing. Though I have to wonder if it is the computer fairy who keeps the anti virus up to date? ;D ;D
Ladies on the other hand, do not in the main view computers as a means of entertainment - computers are functional - there to do a job.
It is I believe our loss that this may be the case.
Some days your the windscreen, and some days your the fly.
Michael, whilst this is a wee bit off topic, it is an interesting aside and WE do NOT have a fetish about strict relevance unlike some other Fora.
Now I would disagree with your main contention. I use a computer and enjoy surfing the web, but to me in the end it's a tool, just like the TV, the Phone, the Fax, the Mobile. I'm not at all worried that the Case is not the same colour as the Flat Screen monitor or the Optical Mouse or the large size external disk drive. SOME women WOULD make a big issue of these periperal issues or the which Windows Colour Scheme is used.
As to whether such a matter has any relevance regarding Women being Freemasons or not, I cannot see it, but others may find a behavioural connection.
Simple, there are far less Women Freemasons than Men and , no disrespect to those wonen who are Lady Masons or to Co-Masons, but the nature of women seems to be less interested in the "clubable" aspects of Freemasonry, especially as practiced here under UGLE.
There are no doubt other topics which have a gender bias and which would not attract postings from women surfing the web whilst others will have a preponderance of women as posters but few men.
Yes there are Lady Masons out there, there are two Lodges of them meeting at Masonic Halls I go to, at Caversham and Wokingham, but they keep themselves to themselves so perhaps that is also the case regarding the Internet and this and other Fora.
I'll see if I can find their website, sign the guestbook and leave the link, suggesting that if they don't like the idea their Mod simply deletes it but if happy we would be delighted to have postings from them.
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

The Ancient: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
