I've seen this kind of intriguingly rude behaviour on several 
wikis, but not at all in another project of mine, where e-mail is 
the primary form of communication.  Maybe the offender thinks he 
is talking to a machine, just like he would kick a soda vending 
machine or hit a television set that loses sync.  Could we make 
wikis look more like a community of real people?  How?
