Well, Chris, having been a Usenet user for over ten years (and a C-News admin 
for the first three of that), I've seen 'discussions' that were really ad 
hominem.  I've seen stuff that wouldn't even be found on slashdot.  Visit the 
old archives on google of alt.flame.  Or news.groups.  Or even the civil 
news.admin.... :-)

This group is far and away the most civil public development group I have ever 
seen.  Really.  No joke.

Oooohhhh, don't give me nightmares!  Tom is the original 'Bugzilla' in my 
book.  But it's still educational to se how he got started, and how recent 
that really was.

Of course, PostgreSQL existed before he came in, and PostgreSQL would exist 
afterwards -- that is, after all, the beauty of free software.
