Tobi, Perhaps it's because the desire to "collect" stuff, whether it be rocks, sports memorabilia, or whatever, is actually a kind of mental disorder, slightly more respectable than being a chronic "hoarder", but a disorder nevertheless, and women are more resistant ;))
That totally makes sense :-)

I'd love to hear women's voices - there are a few on this forum who have certainly something to say.

As the undoubted possessor of double dominant squirrel genes, I recognize the syndrome and the fact that having 3 of anything is the potential beginning of another collection. If we take 3 as the magic threshold it means only actively aware nonsquirrels or antisquirrels are completely free of the syndrome. Evidently resistance is close to futile.


Peter,
I took a quick look at all of the wine bottles in the man cave and realized I am in trouble! Agh! Another collection! Aw, nuts! There's a bunch of Scotch, too...ye gads! Oh, those are Marcie's....whew! What a relief!

Hello James.

What I say is correct, in the Spanish forum there is not a separate section of women's collections; "nimfiara" has published her collection in the same place as everyone, for example me...

Perhaps that forum didn't have a Spanish equivalent to our Gail who promoted women and minerals.
