An innocuous question to the list ended with this imperative:
> (Please respond to me or list with polite and considerate
> e-mails only, thank you.)

Man, are we really that rough a crowd? It sounds to me like the poster
was expecting to get flamed, when the only potentially flame-provoking
element of that otherwise innocuous post was the "don't flame me"
pre-emptive strike.

There's usually a certain level of candor and bluntness on this list,
which I appreciate; but I haven't seen much rudeness. (But then, I'm
from New York. I prefer that people not mince words.) Have people been
flaming each other off-list or something?

(Happy, non-profane responses only, thank you. No swearing, now.)
