  I don't care who started it or who threw more insults; please keep
your contributions to the list at least minimally civil.  That goes for
everyone involved, and is not intended as a put-down of you specifically.
Lists like this can tend to become unnecessarily hostile, and I think a
reminder now and then helps keep people aware of the issue of the tone
of discussions.

  Escalating personal disagreements is not useful, particularly online
where it's difficult to gauge whether someone's reply was actually meant
to be confrontational.
