More on Citizendium

Mike Johnson from the Citizendium project has opened a dialogue about women and Citizendium on the Citizendium blog. Please go read his post and continue the discussion over there. I've already added one comment.

I'm concerned that Mike saw my original post as "snarky" and full of name-calling. Diid anyone else read it as such? That's not the tone I meant to take.

Thanks for participating in this conversation with me!

In no way did I think your post was snarky or name-calling. Not even close.

Absolutely not. You have been balanced and fair (you know, I really appreciate that about you), and were raising some very valid concerns.

In fact, referring to your piece as "snarky" and "name-calling" is doing exactly what he's accusing you of doing. And it feels far too much like he's trying to marginalize you into being "one of those snarky, name-calling blogger types" so that he doesn't have to listen to the concerns you're raising.

I appreciate the dialog. For those who have not read my follow-up comment on the Citizendium blog, I was not implying Leslie engaged in any name-calling. Leslie, I feel you've been very personally respectful of everyone in the Citizendium project.

i think snarky is probably the last word I would have used. Just for feedback.
