Nor does the use of inappropriate words and expressions. Sarcasm and 
insult are not on the same scale.
In our (very young but rapidly growing) Israeli Drupal community 
(http://drupal.org.il), I always ask the members to learn from the high 
quality of discussions in D.O. forums and mailing lists, and to maintain 
this quality, by being mature and respectful. This usually works, and 
I'm glad we could import the discussion quality to our local site.
I'd like to see the same quality continue here.
One must remember that his/her contribution and effort are  the result 
of their own free will, and that they cannot expect anything of anyone.
This, of course, goes for everybody else, who should respect the 
contribution efforts of others by, at least, not being sarcastic, or 
anything of the likes.

People! Life is too short to waste it on silly fights. Let's all enjoy 
the creation and wonderful work which is being done here!

(Maybe we should block messages to list after midnight :-)  )
