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.
