Val's message was also the result of me apparently saying things badly.
Apparently at least two people got the idea that I was saying I wanted
to make a female-only techtalk.

What I MEANT to say was:
I want to know IF people want a female-only techtalk, but I personally
think it's a bad idea because... (of reasons I stated in my letter

So no,  I am NOT making a female-only techtalk by fiat. If I was doing
things by fiat, I'd be inclined to say there would NOT be one. 
What I DID decide by fiat is that I want a techtalk meta-FAQ. 

I also suggested that interested people might want to discuss MAYBE
separating techtalk into a mixed-gender and female-only pair of lists,
or - preferably - provide me with a better suggestion.

Just trying to set the record straight here, hopeless as such things may

The coordination list is for the chapter heads and volunteers. Can we
keep the general discussion of the potential female-only list to issues?
