in reply to Virtues of Community

I'm reading this two years after it was posted - but it reminds me of a post to comp.lang.perl (yep, before the split) that Larry made in response to a flame. That had 30 or so different answers, all saying the same thing in different tones of voice. I found the post on google a while back - I could probably find it again, but my point is that when Larry was still active in the newsgroups he was always able to post well reasoned and balanced posts - something that I've found to be rather unusual in most on-line communication unfortunately.

So using Larry as a role-model is fine with me :-)
