There is enough variation in culture from mailing list to mailing list, and for forum to forum that I really question if they are so fundamentally incompatible (especially when nobody will bother to say what the differences are, just that they are so different that they can never get along)
I am not saying that there isn't going to be a need for some accommodation, but as noted elsewhere, if this makes it possible for the developers to participate in the forums where they didn't before, the value of getting a real response can overwhelm any inconvenience and friction from the different cultures.
