Okay, so if I understand correctly, you are telling me to be less susceptible.

Well, I will let it drop - I am quite optimistic that personally I will
survive to insults by random strangers on the Internet.

The reason I have been insisting is that inaction towards this kind of
behaviour kills communication in the GNU project - if victims of verbal
abuse are expected to change their opinions to stop the name calling,
or are invited to be less susceptible, they will eventually just leave,
and their example will prevent others from joining. And as has been amply
demonstrated, just brandishing guidelines without options for sanctions
does not solve the problem.

My point is made, I presume.
