The "staff" on this list are entitled to work without fear of having
explicit insults and inappropriate language thrown at them, especially
when they choose to participate. The expectation is to work in a decent,
well-ordered, respectful, unviolent, and helpful environment.

It doesn't matter how valid the points made are. If you are kicking the
target in the teeth at the same time, they are not uppermost in your
mind and deserve to be ignored.

It is not just what you say - it is the way that you say it that matters.
This isn't, or shouldn't be, an anything goes list.
