We have even managed to help out others when, in other ways, we are totally at 
odds with their expressed views or ideas -- especially where they involve 
religion, politics, philosophy, etc. 

I can think of a few people on the list whose opinions are diametrically 
opposed to my own (at least, to judge by superficial details); yet we have 
managed to cooperate when it comes to the Trinity desktop project. 

It seems to me that we share a common purpose, if we participate in this 
mailing list, and mostly we manage to rise above petty differences. 

Nobody knows your race, ethnic background, or anything else about you, unless 
you choose to tell us. And I hope that we can keep the peace here, at least, 
when the rest of the world is falling apart all round us.
