On the contrary, they will also mentor men - we are not sexist!  I don't know 
how many men, but they won't eat you!!  Neither you nor Lena has to blog.  
Just get a mentor!

Here is the address again:

Just join the list and ask for a mentor.  There is also a wiki page about it, 
but I'm not sure where that has got to.  It was being revamped and I don't 
know whether it has been finished.

The mentors are there to help with precisely the type of problem Lena has - 
and apparently you have also.
