    … and here’s the downside of women’ increased Web use.

    Trying to look at this dispassionately, the Web has been built on geekery and pornography, with a few sports results and car brochures thrown in for good measure. So with a greater gender balance among users, culture wars are inevitable.

    Less dispassionately, the good guys will win only if women such as those featured in this article get the full support they deserve from Web site servers and bloggers.

    I’m surprised none of our women bloggers have protested over your use of the word ‘disturbing’ in relation to women outnumbering men online !
