Do you really want me to tabulate the corresponding line counts as well?

You are currently not as much "participating" as making an ass of
yourself.  When you write stuff like "Don't give excuses.  Write that
documentation." to Juanma, you are not impressing anybody.

If you want to "promote good behavior", you could start by not acting
like you are in a position to order people around.  Even Richard only
has the power to tell people what _not_ to do, but not what to do.

I think you misunderstand what a public mailing list is for.  Civility
is not an option that has to be requested first.
