One can only hope that the set of people resistant to aggressiveness 
("thick-skinned") does not strongly correlate to the set of people often 
exercising aggressiveness. Following your line of reasoning, that would mean 
Debian could likely never be open to people with a soft skin (since only 
somewhat aggressive people could stand entering Debian).

Luckily, I'm not too tempted with following that line of thought because I 
know some DDs that do not fall in the aggressive category. Still, an 
interesting thought... (could also be one of the problems preventing women 
from participating more often in Debian)

(Follow-ups to Debian-project?)
