5 This is really sad. And the kind of people who value that often make
6 good developers if they also have good technical skills.

15 I think the initiative is on the offended person's side. If a developer
16 is being aggressive and needlessly argumentative towards other people,
17 that's clearly a misconduct. Similarly for aggressive users.

22 That might be a part of it.

26 We need leadership. I remember very well when the leader of one of the
27 Gentoo projects I participate in reminded me to always say "thanks" to
28 people who are helping us on Bugzilla. A small thing, but wasn't he right?
30 I believe it's the project leaders and the Council who ultimately set
31 the tone.
