Being misinformed does *not* qualify as trolling. The way Owen came out
of the gate swinging is what I would consider trolling (stirring up a
fuss). I wasn't even involved in the discussion until now and I got pissed
when I read his comments. I think the list can do better than that. I
don't want our list to end up like the Linux kernel ML where if strict
rules aren't followed newcomers are harassed to no end. It's very counter
productive and a lot of times why I categorically leave communities.
You'll find it is much harder to expand your developer base if you act
immature like that. Have some patience.
