I concur. Even highly technical discussions should be respectful and 
generally are on most fora; calling someone an "idiot" or "snowflake", 
calling their ON-TOPIC email "spam", etc, is not technical discourse, it's 
abuse (and also suggests some amount of insecurity in the writer). Don't 
like what Mark (or me) writes? Killfile our email or just delete them 
unread, there's no need to respond at all. Or write to them off-list, which 
is quite easy to do.

Add to that- suggesting someone be banned because their ON-TOPIC comments 
trigger some unexplained reaction is also out of place.
