I have to second what Caryn Rizell wrote about the frequency of
flame wars (which she courageously called rudeness) on this
list. I subscribe to another active list for professional
writers, a list fraught with the usual disagreements and
divergence of opinion, and that list does not appear to me to
generate a fraction of the hostility that erupts here.

Bright people are impassioned, but must we be nasty to those
with whom we disagree? :-)
