Here's a summary:

Be nice to newbies. Everyone was a newbie once, even you.

Assume good faith. If you were wrong, no harm done. If you assume bad
faith and you were wrong, lots of harm done.

Admins are so entrenched in their elitist jargon and pet policies that
they forget how to interact with anyone who doesn't know the jargon and
the policies.

We need a welcome bot.
