in reply to Psychological 'warfare'?

You need to buy a kevlar monks robe. Each of us here got put through a period of hazing where the other monks test our metal. If you think a node response is lacking or too flippant, post a reply to it asking for clarification. If you think they are bluffing, call it, just like a poker game.

    "Each of us here got put through a period of hazing where the other monks test our metal."

    The outcome of which is that some monks leave the monastery in favour of pastoral work, and most of those that remain start providing progressively better answers to avoid the insults.

    ...test our metal.
    It's mettle not metal. But I suppose it's a "mood" point ;-)
