It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: OK, Timbo - Explain yourself. I'm all ears [nt]

I tried to send you an email, but you have blocked that feature. So here goes...

Hi Chris. I much appreciate your musical knowledge and experience, and willingness to share that in your posts about performers and recordings. I have learned a great deal from these.

But I fail to comprehend why you refer to accomplished female musicians, or any women for that matter, as "babes." This is totally demeaning, and only serves to perpetuate attitudes that women are objects (and sexual ones at that).

And especially as a forum moderator, this can only set a very bad example for participants. So I urge you to reflect deeply upon this kind of sexism, which in many ways is no different from the political statements you wish to ban.

Thanks, and all the best,

merlin
