Well, OK, I'll accept partial blame for the misunderstanding (I hope
this is what we can put this down to).  My OP was intended to get people
thinking of this list as a *community* again, not just somewhere for
flame-fests.  I felt the policy *may* be needed if people couldn't learn
to just put their opinions forward and accept that not everyone would be
in complete agreement with them and not to take such things as a
judgement on their personal character.

As it is, the flamewars seem to have abated for now, probably more as a
part of a more common understanding of the new development model than
some naive threats I made.

Best regards,
