No, she's absolutely right. It does lower the respect for the group.
Oftentimes responses to others resemble those of a child, not an adult
trying to further education. Politeness is a cornerstone of a responsible,
educated adult. It is possible to become heated and not think of what you
are saying, but in general, "talking down" to others is ridiculous.

This is what I'm referring to. These types of responses make some people
reluctant to write to Gen-Medieval. It can only lower respect for this
otherwise helpful website. Feeling superior in knowledge of genealogy
excuse this kind of behavior. I was not aware that Gen-Medieval expected
ladies in particular, to be coarse enough to enter sparring contests when
they ask for genealogical help.>>
If they make some people reluctant, that's a good thing.
Instead of "lowering respect" it should raise it. This is one of the few
areas where we are critical of lineage presentations.
"Ladies" get no slack here. If you are expecting ladies to be treated
differently on genealogical matters than men, than you might want to just
join the DAR and ignore this list.
I am not here to give people help. I delight in destruction. It makes my
day when I can rip apart some built-up ediface :)
So now you know.
