Indeed, Brice, the sting of such a rebuke can linger for months afterward

Plainspoken, shorthand invectives feel good at the time they're used. I

believe they do little to foster community, or the exchange of knowledge.

Last I heard, that's what this mailing list was started to do.

Mealy-Mouthed double-talk invectives can also feel good at the time they
are used also. For instance, endless preachy sermons about name-calling
directed a specific person, and then quiet tolerance directed at a
different person who has done the same. This does not foster community,
or the exchange of knowlege either.
