Given the state of the discussion, I am to believe each time a party 
demonstrates unkindess, this very same party is deeply convinced to only 
state bare facts.

So two things: bare facts can be subjective (maybe you’re wrong), and bare 
facts can be worded unkindly, or unprecautionously.

For instance, someone could feel hatred… and that would be a fact, and not 
even a willing decision (we don’t usually “choose” to feel a certain 
emotion)!  Yet expressing it directly, without filter, it has already been 
said, is unkind.

Emotions are natural, and all or them are useful…  at least likely for 
treating with physical aggressions, in the example of anger and hatred… 
but are they useful on a written and cooperative communication medium such 
as a mailing-list? I’m doubt of that…
