Female webmasters?

Just curious to know if there is any female webmasters.
From my imagination, this is a quite male dominated industry, right?

I have two cards, the formal one says "WEB MANAGER" and the one which I hand out at exhibitions "SEX MANAGER".

I assume you meant, "and the one I hand out at exhibitions says 'SEX MANAGER' "? It's just that your comment about misspelled words makes me think you might have worries about proper grammar and syntax, too.

Well nit-picked, cEM. I do have worries about proper grammar and syntax, however I also enjoy making jokes both about proper and improper grammar and syntax. For example, although my two business cards each contain different job titles and email addresses, neither of them SAYS anything; you have to LOOK at them and READ them ;)

Question: do you use the words SEX MANAGER to make exhibitionists (no pun intended) not want to email you? I don't really understand that particular word choice. You could easily use "SITE MANAGER" on one and "WEB MANAGER" on another. It would have the same effect you describe (easy email sorting), without being creepy and inappropriate. Just a thought.

In short yes, and the pun was intended *S*. Without going into potentially offensive detail, business card wording such as mine is viewed as conservative at the types of business exhibitions which I attend. Presenting the cards at non-adult conferences and trade shows is also frequently entertaining, however I doubt they would be appropriate at events in the vicinity of Salt Lake City.

As well as neither title being gender specific, the primary reason I use them is simply because it allows me to identify exhibition hawker emails, plus bounce ***all*** emails addressed WEBMASTER@.

Oh! That's a good tip, trees. ;-]

Sorry for drifting off-topic here, but wherever possible I deliberately bounce HOSTMASTER@ INFO@ JOBS@ SALES@ and WEBMASTER@ by disabling "catch all" acceptance, use SpamProof.Org response forms wherever possible, and PROHIBIT the use of "mailto:" under penalty of death. Any female webmasters disagree? *S*
