I agree with this entirely. On a different list, related to scouting,
one member took any differing opinion or interpretation as a "flame", no
matter how nicely it was worded. The bottom line was "Its my way, or
you're flaming me!" He even got so bad that this person would *send
faxes* to respond to people that had "flamed" him. He wasn't on the list
very long after that.
I understand that some things are blatant, but unless someone takes
something ENTIRELY out of context, to the point that responses are
useless, I've never seen a point to flaming or taking personal shots anyway.
