Default Womenz in the forumz?

I'm just curious: Are there any current women members in the forum? Secondly, how many have there ever been in the forum?

I would be impressed with by any woman who could tolerate us for an extended period of time.

It's pretty hard to tell sometimes. Like when they just use their initials.

Here's a woman who crunched for the NPLB project you administer:

Interesting. Nearly all of the Lauren's on this list are female:

What do you mean with 'us'? I don't think women have to tolerate 'us' (I can't speak about your manners of course) - I hope you're not thinking about discrimating (Mersenne) guys in general.

lol I had a feeling I'd open a can of worms there. What I mean is that, being a mostly male forum, many of us have a tendency to express ourselves in a not very nice way. Myself included in that category. To avoid offending the masses, note the term "many of us", not "all of us". In other words, there's not a lot of "gentle feelings" being expressed around here. :-)

Oddball, to the best of my knowledge NPLB has had no female crunchers but there are a couple of IDs in our recent rally that I'm not familiar with that do not make it very clear.

I had not seen the previous forum link about women on GIMPS. It's nice to know that there are a few around, even if they aren't particularly active on Mersenneforum.

How do you know that, some of us don't try to project a male image on this site, while being biologically female. Men frequently do the same on-line. If I were Danica McKeller, I would assume an identity while visiting this forum.
