Maybe. Probably for this one response. However, as I pointed out, there are wider repercussions to be expected from such behavior, and it is worth to show, as a community, that we disapprove of such ways of communicating. Even if that is done in a rather unfriendly manner.
On re-reading the thread, I think you are right in that ajross was more impolite than bojan, which often leads to a downward spiral and isn't helpful... bojan's post wasn't that far off from the normal tone on this site.
Anyway. This is went pretty far off-topic, and I think we mostly agree. For as far as we don't, we at least agree on that ;-)
