Perhaps hold off on referring guys for a bit, at least 'till we've 
re-thought how we want to handle things.  There must be some other 
newbie-friendly places that aren't gender-based -- can anyone recommend 
some that they've liked?

Responses to this effect should go to grrltalk rather than techtalk.  
I've set the reply-to for this message.

Also, if those not on grrls-only would like to make further 
comments/suggestions about community behaviours, please post them to 
issues or grrltalk.
