I guess you mean a low signal noise ratio (S/N). Too much noise,
that's it. That's probably right in some of the lists, but having too
much non-useful stuff doesn't have to mean that discussions have to be
disrespectful or aggressive.

That probably happens in every project anyway, especially in those
that work by consensus.

I don't think that the problem is the discussions or the conflics
themselves, I have quite a good opinion on what a conflict is in its
essence, they're unavoidable and it's positive that they appear. My
concerns are only with about how those conflicts are fced and solved.
I'm out of debian-devel, debian-project, debian-vote and the such
since what happened some months ago, so I cannot speak for those, but
for example in debian-legal, which is by definition a very
conflict-attracting list, discussions are mostly often carried out
quite respectfully for me. It might probably depend on the list
anyway, dunno.

Or maybe it is that I have developed a thicker skin without even
noticing. Who knows.
