Well said.

As a relative outsider reading the list traffic in the past month:
I've seen a lot of good stuff happen, but apparently, that's all gone
now.  I've seen good design discussions end in name-calling and thinly-
veiled or plain obvious insults.  I don't think that gets us anywhere.

Tantrums, flamebait, trolling, flaming... not as productive as getting
more development done, or getting the next release out the door.

I could give words of wisdom here, but I'd be talking out my arse, cos
I don't exactly have a lot of experience here.  I just think a little
more patience, restraint, and understanding would help.
