> I contribute productively and usefully
This should have gone in private but I want it to be public because
you and others apparently do not get it. The fact that you're
contributing or not does not give you or anybody else the right to
behave improperly on our mailing lists, forums, or else. There is no
amount of contribution that would compensate for even the slightest
inadequate behavior. Please everybody, print that and pin it above

Thanks for the good example. Please, you and everybody else, note that
this above is considered abrasive by most of us. If you do this, not
only do you pollute our mailing-lists, but you also attract more
abrasive behavior from others. You only get what you deserve, so if
you need to cry on somebody's shoulder then go see your mom. Do not
express your hurt feelings on this list, we don't care. Not talking
about making an ass of yourself for being so childish.

You do the exact same in you own way. Please allow me to take that
beam from your eye.
Now, I suggest you do not reply to this mail in public as this would,
again, be off-topic. Feel free to contact me in private though, I'll
be happy to discuss that with you in case you need to.
