Dear Philippa,

"display themselves on demand" is putting it rather harshly don't you think?

I pretty much injected my previous email back into the thread because I 
felt I asked a simple question and find that people are getting a bit 
carried away. I am for instance quite certain that Lady Ada Lovelace is 
not subscribed to this list.

To me the question was non-controversial or so I thought but it seems to 
have stirred quite a bit of passionate responses. (For which I merely do 
not wish to be blamed).

I agree though that concluding "there are no female haskellers on this 
list" was premature and promise to exercise more patience.

Best regards
