    Default Stupid post..but has anyone else find it ironic that

    the male fragrance discussion has WAY more posts than the female fragrance discussion?
    isn't the common perception that women care more about perfumes than men? (and why do women have more moderators?

    -end of weird questions at two in the morn-

    The Male forum was the very first forum and initially, it was the only forum. The Female forum was added much later, when similar female forums had already been established elsewhere. And that's why the Male discussion is much bigger.

    I never thought this was weird at all. Discussing the ins and outs of some hobby and dissecting things is more of a guy thing in general.

    Yeah, near-obsessive interest in hobbies (guilty, your honor) tends to be a guy thing in my experience.

    Though that could be selection bias on my part-- cigars and pipes, fountain pens, fragrances, wetshaving...

    But it seems like, generally speaking, men are more inclined to get a bug for some particular esoteric slice of the world and want to know every little useless detail about it.

    "It was a little more balanced not too long ago, but a few moderators on the men's side wanted to quit doing that and it became a little lopsided. Now all of the mods can moderate any of the forums, but our names are still listed on the forums where we started out."

    except if you read the listed above forums you will find this is not the case at all. Also if you go to fragrantica or MUA or nowsmellthis etc, you will find further evidence that your observations are not based on reality

    I think he was aiming at a world larger than fragrance. And I would have to agree with his observations.

    Dr_Rudi - are you a moderator? You might consider putting shadesofbleu's post in quotation marks to avoid any confusion.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
