What I think you are missing here is the severability (or lack thereof)
between the symptom (poor language and manners) and the problem (the rpm
fork). If we treat only the symptom, another symptom will arise to take
its place. However, the new symptom will not be merely jbj by another
name, but jbj via another expression, which may be better or worse,
invisible or decidedly visible. Greg advocates courage to go after the
problem--and that's what I endorse, as inconvenient a truth as it may
