To be honest I don't care that much about abusive vs non-abusive in sites like this.
When I come here I am not looking for a hug - I usually have a technical problem I need input for.
And that I usually get here.
And that is all I want.
I am not here that often but my impression is that people that post contributions that may be considered to be abusive can give very good reasons for why they think the tone they use is wanted for.
I have never ever seen people being flamed simply for being inexperienced but I have seen people being flamed for consistently spreading inaccurate information.
And that's the way it should be.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
