The BCO moderators have asked that politics stay off the boards as much as possible. Therefore I invite you to join an-off BCO email list where politics can be discussed: groups.google.com/group/uppity...

Thanks cycle!  I understand why the Mods want to keep this site free of politics (I joined BCO in 2008 and it did get pretty hot and heavy -- oh my, that's an understatement!) and so I really appreciate that you've set up a site for us "uppity women"!  See you there!

When you join the discussion list, I have to approve you.  I had to choose that option in order to keep the discussions from being searchable. But anyway, if I don't approve you right away it's because I'm off having a Real Life. I'll get back to you soon.

Sunflowers: If we "join" Google, doesnt' that mean they have that new non provacy program where they can "follow" you all over the web?????

Honestly, I don't know. But you can subscribe to the list without getting a google account. If you don't know how, just ask.

spendygirl: You're very very welcome to join, as long as you understand that you're going to be completely outnumbered! I actually find that if everyone in a group is in agreement about something, the discussions are pretty boring. So I think it will be good to have you there. As time goes on we'll see how it works out.

Hi CLC! I just approved you. A moment before I emailed a long introductory message to the group.

Anyone who thinks they're subscribed but didn't get the email I just sent, let me know and I'll see what I can figure out.

catbill: I'm willing to bet you're not an idiot. Here's what you do. Create a new email message in your email program. Address the message to uppity-women-unite+subscribe@googlegroups.com

You don't need to write anything in the message. Just press send.

ProudMom: I don't think you have to create a google account, but I'm not sure. I think you're ok just sending the email. Try it and let's see.  

Spendygirl: I just approved a couple of new members, maybe you're one of them. I'm reluctant to post anyone's email address, but are the first two letters of your email address "ch?" If so, I just approved you. 

Proudmom, are the first two letters of your email address "dr?" I just approved that one too. 

Athena: yep, you joined.
