IMO the new members should have some common sense about what they write. It
is the tone that is the poison, not the point. First there was hell lot of
bad tone at tmo, and now I hope this was the first and the last one to
mailing lists.

If you want to suggest somebody to change something, do you start with "Yo,
fucker! you are a piece of shit! I think you lack ..... and you should ...."
?(example aggravated)

Why did the conversation opener only picked "the gems", aka things that
apply to maemo community? Why not picking couple points that doesn't apply
at all with those?

All negative is a good way to mess things up and make the repicient to
ignore the point and everything else. It is basic psychology and regognised
by foremen at least in places I've worked.

Ossipena / Timo
