Until the time that the list regulars grow the social skills that they
desperately need, the list will always be like this. Others are taking their
cues from them.

-dev has really degraded in quality over the last year, mostly because of
certain voices becoming more active, and others becoming less so. Many people
would rather stroke their own ego by slating others than have a civil
discussion, with the end result that most threads become a meaningless
circlejerk of hatred towards the thread poster with little to no rational

Thankfully not everyone on this list is like this, but sadly it seems that we
now have an equal distribution of those who do and don't understand the phrase
"civil discourse".

If the majority of people on this list are as easily enraged in real life as
they are on this list, they need some serious fucking therapy. If they aren't,
then they need to realise that the purpose of this list isn't to facilitate the
stroking of their internet genitalia.
