Girls That Play Games: Redux

Browsing the Warcraft forums this afternoon, I ran across a post advertising a WoW Gurls, a new forum for female Warcraft players.  The response it's getting ("a/s/l plz" and "300 cooking is a prerequisite") does not surprise me, considering the venue, but it's still sort of disappointing.  Another poster pointed out a more established forum, Women of Warcraft.  While these forums theoretically provide a safe haven for female gamers to come together and talk shop, it sometimes seems that the establishment of a site for women merely attracts and encourages all of the typical forum trolls.  Is this behavior simply to be expected when you mention women to Warcraft's target demographic?
