He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

So, you think that you won't be able to see these threads, and that you won't be able to participate in them? You know this for a fact, how?

Hi Alan,
just to point something out, the suggestion was not for an invisible area rather for "an area where female members cnas share some women issues in an atmosphere that we decide, perhaps we self-moderate sisterly, an area where men and male mods are heartily invited guests, to read and participate, but not welcome to domineer any discussions, as it is can happen now"

Greetings,

I think this particular suggestion has now run its course...

Some good points and have been made throughout the topic and I think we can leave it there.

Thank you everyone for your participation, thoughts and suggestions.

May all beings be happy ~ regardless of the conventional divisions we may allow to come between us.

Metta,
Retro. :)
