Compliments, agreements and reasoned discussion are usually welcome
off-list responses to posts on the list. But it seems that when people
get irate about something said on the list, their off-list response is
often rude at best. Personally I think if they have something important
to say, then they should be willing to say it on the list and in a way
that is acceptable in public discussion. If it isn't that important then
they shouldn't say it.
I don't mean that as an invitation to light the list up with flame wars.
Personally, there are few things I less like to reads than personal flames
on the list.
One of the worst aspects of e-mail communication is that some people act
like they're free of the usual need for courteousy.
