The Python newsgroup (and corresponding list) comp.lang.python has
always seemed to me much friendlier than Debian lists, despite the fact
that they are of similar sizes. I claim therefore it is possible to have
a big group of people working and talking together even about
controversial issues without flames, if the group as a whole considers
it a good thing and there are prominent role models that eschew flames
and actively calm things down when they get hot.
