I am not sure how one blogger out there can continually. . .

complain about the membership requirements of the BSI and yet so readily almost pander to another group which states, ". . . are an all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans dedicated to approaching the fandom from a female point of view, as well as engaging in fun, lively conversations about the canon, film and television adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle’s work, and associated topics...

Now I am okay with the requirements that both societies have set. If you want to be in an all female group that doesn't allow males, well that's up to you.
But if you want to be a member of another group that also limits it's membership for what ever reasons it chooses, that's fine also.

If you don't like how either one does it, don't support them, or don't accept the invitation to join (or sent back your shilling, get the divorce).

If said bloggers goes along with the saying "all Sherlockiana is good Sherlockiana", well lets just say he would have half as many posts.

Holmes and Watson. What a waste of time and talent.

I really tried to go into it with an open mind.
I like most of what John C. Reilly does, especially lately.
And some of what Will Ferrell does.

But this film really let both of them down, again, especially John C. Reilly.

There was no real story, just an hour and a half or so (seemed much longer) of really bad jokes and prat-falls.

I am not even going to compare it to Without a Clue, it come no where near that wonderful comedy.

Lots of great talent Holmes and Watson, but I am sure most of them are sorry to have to put this one on their resume.

Once again he is onto his favorite subject -The BSI

Come on Sherlock Peoria, give back your shilling, take off your armor and become the serf you claim you really are.

You are starting to sound like you did for the first eight years of Elementary, and a broken record.

To me it just makes you sound like you are wanting to fit in with what is popular at the moment.

If all Sherlockian is good Sherlockian, move on!

I just noticed this on one of my least favorite blogs. . . . .

"I don't go on much about being a member of the Baker Street Irregulars. I don't attach those three letters to my name in correspondence or Sherlockian resumes. And occasionally I bitch about the group's membership policy. All of this begins thirty years ago."

I think it is kind of funny that in his not going on much about being a member, he seems to almost always go on about being a member of a group that he doesn't even really like that much and is always complaining about.

Even, in his least blog post,  going on about not wanting much of the credit for helping change a membership policy while making a point of telling us how much credit he should get for that.

He doesn't occasionally go on about the groups membership policy, but instead does it fairly often.

Again I must ask, "if you don't want to be a positive force for change within the group, positive being the key word, give back your membership."
