Please do not discourage our co-maintainer by speaking disrespectfully on this
mailing list!!! Those who do so will be moderated out of the discussion. I'd
much rather have Eli stick around, than see a minor technical point championed
at the expense of one of our most stalwart contributors.

To everyone: If you can't phrase your disagreements and observations in calm,
rational language, then please refrain. We should be speaking to each other as
though we were what we are: computer professionals who know what we're doing,
and who all want Emacs to succeed.

Claims backed up by data argue well here; attacking the position or
credibility of others not only fails to win the point, it loses big on morale,
which is much more precious commodity. We're a small community; there is no
need for this.

Eli, please do not step down. You are my ray of light against a dark sea of
never-ending bug reports.
