I understand your disappointment. I would like to note, however, that if we do not have these discussions to educate those who don't get it, the problem will never get solved. It is peer pressure like this that both educates and influences people to understand what is socially unacceptable and to stop the unacceptable behavior.
Beeline me, I also sit by and lurk through the highbrow stuff, too!

As soon as I can figure out how to, I will be unsubscribing from this list. Already I rarely read it because of the endless philosophical discussions and arguments, which are not what I expected when I signed up. Today's incredibly sexist, misogynistic argument about women and sex had only male participants, had only an initial and tangential connection to the topic of the list (atheism and secular humanism), and should have been taken off-list as soon as the moderator mentioned that the poster's comments were potentially grounds for banishment from the list.
I am greatly disappointed.
