Talking about antisocial... It's quite interesting what I experienced 
in this very list.

I wasn't aware of the study published in the New Scientist until I 
read about it here on the list, and appreciate the information very much.

Earlier this month I wrote about my perception of the same inadequate 
behavior on the Portuguese Wikipedia and the adverse consequences 
that might have. Not surprisingly I met a pretty derogatory comment 
and plenty of silence. I certainly don't have the status of the New 
Scientist. I also don't have, yet, any study to back up my observations.

Nevertheless I'm saddened by the undeniable evidence, that even on 
this list it is easier to find displeasure than empathy, camaraderie, 
not to mention friendship. As I was told: That doesn't really fly here.
