Ok, Eric, here's what I think...

I think personally that all the discussion on this list is a byproduct of folks working alone in their little offices and cubicles and needing to talk to somebody--anybody. Some days I log on and there are 10 posts in a row from the same person! The time/date stamps all come within minutes of each other. Its a chaotic episode--like a verbal epileptic fit, or a sun storm...data dump, feelings vent, finger exercise, everybody chimes in, lightening, thunder, verbage flies...then back to linear progression...code one, debug two...until the next time. Like a virtual trip to the water cooler. And you're right--sometimes on the way they empty their bowels, or commiserate, or pass some snide remarks, or pontificate, or grab a candy bar and coffee, or just grieve...just like work!

The most amazing thing is that really beautiful moments happen too--folks find comfort, an answer to a question they've been stumped by, a laugh or two, relief in the middle of relentless anxiety, some free advice (ok, is it really free if you have to wade through 60 e-mails with the same subject line to find it?) Let's just practice mercy for awhile.
