The mailing lists are generally better than the nadir of a couple of years
ago and it's incumbent on us all to make sure they don't descend to that
state again. It is absolutely not ok to respond to someone who is trying to
make a reasoned argument with a dismissive, personal insult such as "get a
life". An environment where that sort of speech is accepted is not a
collaborative, welcoming one, and OSM can only succeed if people are
prepared to collaborate.

Friedrich has not been indefinitely banned, he's been suspended from this
one list for one month. (Contrast with Xxzme/d1g who was banned from the
whole wiki for three months.) I hope he will return in a month and be able
to engage constructively, politely and with tolerance for others.
