Whilst I would agree that some messages in that thread were heated,
and perhaps rude, and the effect of this would indeed be demotivating,
it was (is) a *huge* thread, and I don't think every message was
negative. I recall reading many positive ones too.  To some extent,
when you have an enormous thread, you will have quite a spectrum of
responses varying in politeness etc.
