Screw "female" technical talent; this is one of the most technically 
skilled lists I've ever encountered. The only other one that was in the 
same ball-park was qmail at list.cr.yp.to, the official Qmail discussion list. 
The people there knew huge amounts about MTAs, RFCs 821, 822, et al., and 
basically about anything that could impact your mail server.

The folks here seem to have a much broader knowledge, including stuff 
outside of Linux completely (I've seen FreeBSD and even Windows questions 
get answered here, and Raven just gave an answer to a networking question 
that's pretty much OS-independent). I'm frequently impressed by the level 
of technical expertise here. This list is also friendlier than the Qmail 
list was.

I think it rocks, and I'm glad it allows male participants.
