[[User:Pfrields|Paul W. Frields]] responded<ref>http://marilyn.frields.org:8080/~paul/wordpress/?p=1653</ref> to the recent discussions about the new fedora-devel moderation policy. "There’s simply no place in free software, and certainly not in Fedora, for that kind of abuse. Of course harsh words aren’t the end of the world. When we let them become the noise that drowns out the signal, though, we’re putting the project at risk. If contributors feel their time in community discussions are wasted, they will either hold them elsewhere, or simply go away."
