in reply to An interesting and poignant quote

I think much of this "comes from the top". This site has a rather active collection of de-facto leaders that mostly foster the atmosphere of respect and even politeness.

Some other on-line forums I've used had real attitude problems that resulted from either a lack of leadership or de-facto leaders that fostered rudeness either unintentionally or in a misguided hope of stopping the "newbie problem".
