[Sigia-l] Five questions about the future of this community
Is our collective knowledge enriched by an environment in which new
contributors are discouraged from participating by the prospect of
being subjected to vitriol and ridicule?
Does it serve the profession to have its premier forum function as a
junior high debate club where every discussion is framed as an argument
with winners and losers, and he who has the last word wins?
Does an individual's "right to participate" trump the community's right
not to have meaningful discussion stifled by knee-jerk antagonism and
Are we made stronger by our willingness to look the other way while a
simple bully runs roughshod over one discussion after another?
Does it reflect our values to have a community that shows so little
regard for civility and mutual respect?
