Well, Nancy Lebovitz made a point of saying "I'm a woman and I don't have a problem with the tone".

Thanks. I was thinking about bringing that up, but on the other hand, what I said wasn't as hostile as wedifrid's suggestion of "girls, I seriously don't know what is your problem; I am a woman, and LW is the most friendly website ever", even though, as it turned out, I really didn't understand the problems a lot of people have with LW's tone.

Right. You didn't dismiss their discomfort, you just said that you didn't share it yourself.
