But it's the open source way, and is widely (though not universally) supported here whenever the question comes up of whether this is an appropriate way to behave.
Standards are great, double standards doubly so.
(BTW I'm not being flippant - this is exactly the standard of behaviour that's considered normal and expected in the open source communities I look at. Compared to debian-devel it's positively gentlemanly.)

I'm sure you could find many examples of open-source communities where rudeness and flamefests are considered appropriate behaviour. You could also find examples where the opposite is true.
But however "widely supported" this attitude is in the greater open source world, it is my experience that it's not supported here on LWN, which is (for the most part) a very polite, civil, intelligent place for discussion.
