Paul said,> Opinions are flames?
Some of the private responses I've gotten when I've attempted to remind
people of the rules have gone well beyond "flame" and into the "threats"
or "abuse" category. This boils down to a lot more than what is said
on-list. This list is frankly very self-righteous, and has a very bad
tendency to respond to reminders that there are expected behaviour
guidelines for those on the list very poorly.

I would like to remind you: There is no guideline that says we can't
publicly enforce rules. Nor do members of the list get to write new ones.

Direct attacks happen often, though rarely in public. Dominik was made
to feel unwelcome, and frankly, neither you nor I witnessed the full
exchange he was exposed to. If he chose to leave the list, he felt he
had good reason. I do know for a fact he was contacted privately, though
I don't know what was said, and that the private contact is what made
him choose to leave. If you want to get upset about his leaving, get
upset at the person who felt he couldn't just drop the issue, but had to
harass a developer in private as well beyond simply offering his opinion
in public and leaving it at that. I'm quite certain if it had just been
left to the public comments, it wouldn't have been enough to cause him
to leave.

Paul if that's the case then I'd like to complete distance myself from this.
That's completely out of order and personal attacks can never be condoned.
Eespecially towards a dev who's a volunteer on this project. Shame on
whoever did that and for what it's worth they should be removed for
