    Yes.

    No, not a member there. Never been a fan of these sites for women thing. They talk about stuff that really doesn't interest me :D

    What is stopping somebody from creating a twitter account and passing themselves off as a woman asking to join.

    That is something I wondered too. And why just Twitter anyway?

    Don't know, it's not like they can even validate "for sure" you are a woman on twitter. What they going to check, your past tweets to indicate you are a woman, not let you in if a new twitter account just started?

    I'm almost tempted to register out of curiosity . . . almost.

    Oh what the hell.. I've shouted out on twitter for an invite. I don't like unanswered questions.

    Bit of a novel idea really, it's certainly stirring some interest around the web because it's a woman only site.

    Might start: womannotallowedin.com.

    So what is it 007, a general discussion site?

    Was thinking though, the domain they use must be be worth a bit. woman.com, not a domain you'd expect would have been available to get your hands on. Probably not within first year .com got used.

    It looks like a blog with its layout - you have the main post and then people comment beneath it. It's actually boring as hell - in my opinion. Pick up any woman's magazine in a supermarket, turn to the letters pages and you have this site. Posts like "Which coffee maker should I buy" *yawn* and some more sexual related ones, but nothing you wouldn't see in a market purchasable magazine.

    Can you post some screenshots when you get a chance? (You can blur out any information that might be personal).

    Well, taking into account the domain they use (how hard it would be to get that) as a .com. It sounds a little like manufactured site to me. Not a site Joe Blog started as a novel idea, but bigger people behind it. I'm betting they use some-kind of custom software you've never heard off before.

    Did you read the Techcrunch article? It explains who is behind it...

    Checking the TOS, I think it's okay for me to do that.

    Have now, started by two people and see the domain was purchased for a 7 figure sum.

    Kind of looks like Yahoo Answers for women...
