That's fair. I'll add the website to my signature, but if my post is such a big deal, why don't you delete my thread? And, just for the record, not a "he".
To answer your question, Jennifer, I did consider deleting the thread. But, I try to use a light touch as a moderator, and I thought that might be a little strong if you really didn't know that was against the rules. If you'd rather I delete the thread, I can certainly do that.
To your second point, I'm glad we have women on this board, and they make a good contribution. But my last sentence would apply to either men or women so I said "I'd like to see a new member make a few posts that show his
interest in D&DH is larger than his
own personal interest. But if he
has one reason and one reason only for posting, I'll take action."
Since I said "I'd like to see a new member
...", I wasn't addressing you personally with those pronouns, but any new member. Our language doesn't have any easy universal gender-neutral pronouns that satisfy everyone. So, instead of saying "his or her" and "he or she," I usually use what we used to call the universal masculine like we used to do without any controversy. I never thought the universal masculine meant only men, so I've never seen reason for offense at that. I'm old fashioned that way, I guess. Even though "she" never refers to men (well, I guess it could [:D] in certain cases), I'm not closed minded enough to think that "he" can never include women -- particularly when we're not trying to make a joke of something.
Thanks for posting. I doubt I could ever own a whitetail enclosure, but I'd like to know more about what's involved in setting one up and managing it, so I hope to see you around.
