I only had a problem once with sexual harassment (and the guy got fired very quickly), even with as many guys as I had around at all times. Mostly they wanted to take care of me and protect me, and I'm not a hard core feminist so I don't get offended as long as they don't talk down to me.

That's funny, you really nailed it. Many of my colleagues were indeed hormonally synchronized... but they knew it and were really pretty mellow with the men... but with each other? Whewww, man! Sometimes you had to keep your head down just to avoid being hit in the crossfire.

I learned quickly to have a thick skin because 100 women could be waaaay rougher than 100 men in terms of explicit dialog and innuendo. It's also interesting you mention sexual harassment, my boss was accused of it once but it never went anywhere because he had been at the place longer than anyone else and everyone knew he was basically incapable of it... it just wasn't his nature.

At a company function one night the Chair of the Board of Directors, a Persian woman, was recognizing me for something I did and noticed me blushing, then she made some comments about how easy it would be for me to remove her sari. I just left the stage and thought nothing of it. The next day I got several emails and visits from incensed co-workers, all female, about how I had a real case for a sexual harassment suit. It was trip. I never felt harassed, I've been working on her computers at her house before and she never did or said anything unbecoming. The fact is, she just had several glasses of wine and was feeling loose.

Oh well, I guess we're far enough off topic now, sorry again everybody... short attention span and all you know.

Ps. Ellette, how did your product shoot go?

if you are looking for love on a photo site, you are looking through the wrong end of the telephoto lens.

I don't have to worry about it; I've already caught my limit.

Honestly I've been married to the love of my life for 24 years now. Sheeeeeeew dayam I'm old.

I've run Stormdancing IRC Chat Network for years now. It's a small group of family focused chat servers. Over the years I have organized many Chat Togethers.
We would pick a city, book a hotel and every one that could would show up. In the past we have done Virginia Beach, VA (137 people), Nashville,TN, Lexington,KY, Toeldo, OH, and Branson,Mo. We had great fun. Met lots of people. Never any troublemakers or problems. Various group would go off in each location to see the local sites, shop or just explore the area.

There have also been several couples that have eventually gotten married that met on the chat servers. Hey, I say, go for it. Whatever floats your boat. LOL

That's too bad. There is people like that everywhere. Maybe they can be removed as members if you turn them into the moderators, if they are being rude.

That's precisely what's being done. If anyone recieves a PM on the Camel that they interpret as inappropriate, they should forward that message to a moderator.

...send'em to me, I love to write threatening notes!
