Apologies accepted, it was never a problem at all, a rollicking 
discussion here and there is no big deal. Seen tons and tons of 
them and I don't remember any. :-) I'm sure others feel roughly 
the same way; it's past and done, let's move on.

I have made my share of foolishness, as we all have, being human 
beings (and passionate developers). A thick skin is good; a cool 
head is even better. Eventually we get into the groove of specific 
cultures on developers' mailing lists.

Different destinations on the Internet have different cultures, 
and I think we wear different masks for different places. If we 
don't, there will be a dissonance. I don't think this list is 
perfect, but we can pause and remember that we can all play our 
part in constructive discussion instead of destructive discussion.
