The issue here is about attitude and being respectful. We can disagree on things. Opposing views are a good thing provided the expression of these opposing views is done with respect. This means no personal attacks, no calling names, no personal abuse. We all have different levels of sensitivity and some have thicker skin than others. However, once multiple people express the opinion that an attitude is not appropriate for the list, the responsibility is with the originator to consider that feedback and either adjust to meet community expectations, leave the community or continue without change and accept whatever consequences (if any) the list decides is appropriate. -- Tim Cross
