An aside, since it doesn't bear too much on the topic at hand:
For what it's worth, in my experience the people working on the kernel
are quite sensible and friendly on-list. Probably you are referring
to some high-profile cases of flames, which perhaps I have just been
lucky to avoid. I do not think the way the list works normally is a
counterexample to common decency being useful.
So no, I don't find "But they are mean, and look how well they are
doing!" to be a compelling argument here.
