    Guys,

    No more comments on the hair color, ok? Let's not start that up again.

    Limor runs a great shop and knows her stuff. Stop there. Be positive.

    I agree that is why I do not have a picture of myself on QRZ and at least she still has hair ;)

    Never mind the colour of the hair. She will do for me

    My point was not to stereotype the sexist male assessment of a woman by her looks, but the innate meritocracy of a person's accomplishments.

    Having said that, we know that some male hams haven't been out much in the real world and this hair thing of 'colors not found in nature' reverts them back to the days of Quualudes, punk music, and Adam Ant.

    Just hang in an airport for an hour and you will see such hair coloring is common and fashionable. Knocking it is kinda silly, given that reality.

    Don't look at her picture; look at her product line.
