Nothing. There is nothing wrong with it. In fact, I believe this is the consensus of most of the members here. It makes sense. But I feel that those who play these cards, aren't interested in becoming a member of a community, rather than get hits on youtube, or photos in a magazine.
It is all too rare. If it happens in front of me - I'll buy you a drink, then tell war stories.
We all appreciate good drummers (competition, inspiration, entertainment, pure musical enjoyment).
The issue we see as qualifiers (or self-designated restrictions), this is not instrument specific, or gender specific, nor is it just music, but life in general.
