I am saying tha discrimination on the basis of topic is a list rule;
this is normal for nearly every mailing list I have every been on.

But discrimination on the basis of the gender of the poster is not.

Where has anyone been excluded because they are male?

Because I've read the offensive messages in question, and because they
were clearly off-topic for the group and manifested hostility to the
list's existence and purpose.  I've also seen messages from men which
were sympathetic to the list's purposes, and they weren't criticized
or excluded in any way.

I conclude that the discrimination is on the basis of topic, and not
