This thread is instructive. To me, this thread was no big deal until we

Nobody hates anyone here, I hope. I hope we agree that Mr. Guilhaume did 
not respect etiquette---posting eight emails full of self-praise is not 
polite. He apparently did not realize this. It's hard for me to believe he 
didn't realize that it isn't nice, but maybe he comes from a different 
country with different rules of etiquette. Or maybe he fundamentally 
misunderstands the purpose of

Some people called him on the etiquette violation. Maybe that wasn't so 
nice either. Kind of the equivalent of honking a horn.

The most upset people here, from what I can see, are the ones who are 
troubled by this exchange enough to post these emails about "war", "hate", 
and insults. I can understand that you might be upset to find friction 
between people in a mailing list, especially one about classical music, a 
list where it would be nice if we all got along.

If you are new to the internet, you will find that friction exists 
everywhere. If this really bothers you, I suggest that the best response 
is: taking a sip of tea and breathing deeply. Because you can't get the 
friction to go away. It's everywhere.

I will do my best to minimize future friction.
