Isn't that very similar to the commonly followed mailing list etiquettes 
that most User Group mailing lists follow? It's generally aimed to help 
people easily get along with the conversations. But, aren't we already 
following this, at least who do participate in other mailing lists? 
Sometimes you can't stop a raging flame on a mailing list, especially 
when a majority of it's members are firing cannons at each other ;)
