I wouldn't say that it's *required* to "be nice to everyone", but it's
encouraged to act with a level of decorum that one would expect of an adult
who has been exposed to proper social constructs. Translated? Don't be an
ass. It has been observed that you don't have to go out of your way to be
*nice* to everyone, but the maintainers of this list (and the IRC channel)
discourage flamewars and rants that could suggest inferior breeding.

Like my momma always told me, if you don't have anything nice to say, send
the rest of their emails to /dev/null.

At times, you may end up far away from home; you may not be 
sure of where you belong, anymore. But home is always 
there... because home is not a place. It's wherever your 
passion takes you.
