Just from skimming both lists, most of the time I find lkml to be nicer
(and more collegial) to read because it has a better atmosphere than
git@ had in the last year or two.

And yes, a good atmosphere plays an important role. One of the reasons
is that it makes it easier to discern arguments based on personality
disputes - which certainly exist on lk - from actual technical
disagreements that need to be resolved.
