It is never nice to have to raise voice to stop a discussion that is
going in circle, especially when the discussion bursts into flame in
only a few hours.

I ask everybody here on the list to self-moderate, please, maybe using
the following techniques: limit the number of messages sent per day to
two or three, breath deeply and take long walks before answering email,
don't feed the trolls (whoever you think they are), learn to use
killfile.  Your life will be merrier and the walks will raise the
chances for you to get a nice healthy tan :)
