Sebastian, I understand your concern, but as Alec puts it, we have gone
a long way since the 2007-2008 low regarding this type of behaviour.
I'm not advocating that communication in Gentoo mediums has become
perfect, but I don't see all the rudeness and lack of respect and
empathy that you see, not in a global manner.
There are a few cases where people could and should improve their
behaviour, but let's not forget we're a technical community and so it's
imho an illusion to expect us to have a "hugs and kisses" tone. But yes,
everyone participating in Gentoo mediums should strive to be courteous,
respectful and promote debates on ideas.
