Things I like about my workplace:

While the following conversation might happen on an email list:
A: "I am looking for a magazine to give to my 14 year old niece who likes science."
B: "How about Popular Science?"
C: "Popular Science might be good for a nephew but might not be appropriate for a niece"

-- while that may happen, it is promptly followed by people of both genders smacking down person C, "stereotypes" and "bite me" and "shame on you" and "uhhh, why not?"

And then the offender at least semi-apologizes, and then the discussion of science magazines for science-inclined teens continues in a mature and grown-up fashion.

It's nice to know that sometimes large groups of people interacting over email *does* work right.
