If people must be rude to each other in counter-productive ways, could
they please do it off-list?  When "bullying" (to borrow the term used
earlier in a related thread) moves from technical issues to personal
attacks, it merely escalates problems.  It only resolves the issues by
driving people away, and that does not generally help the long term.
