Curiously, i go drinking with programmers very often, and this rarely happen.
I'm sorry you face it commonly (of course one can live with it). That's to me

Flames make me sick, and fill my box of things i unfortunately can't tag as
spam. People flameing recall me of animals fighting. A primitive way of
interacting. I just ingnore them.
Of course i can live with people behaving this way, and i can handle them:

That's a point, despite the fact that i was never called a nerd or geek for
the simple reason i never behaved in such a way. Those who know me can tell
you. And i know more people who cannot even turn on a computer, than hakers,
geek, programmers and such. I pay that by not haveing the tecnical skill most
of you have: that's a trade off i accept and like.
