Trebor reported a desire to entice women to post more than they do, which is
less than men do. The questions you raise (such as about how men ought to
behave) are important ones, but they are not directly responsive to Trebor's
post, only make sense subsequent to a questioning of Trebor's assumptions,
and so are not more correct than those above. The questions that I asked are
thus not "the wrong" ones, but the first ones.
