I've just read your message three times, and you argue eloquently, and 
coherently. But I feel a bit of a disconnection. I don't recognise the 
community you're describing!

I've found the haskell community to be one of the very friendliest I've 
ever come across on the internet. Not just friendly to me, but friendly 
to everyone who comes along. Every time I go on IRC, I see people 
(complete beginners, or less so) receiving a standard of free help and 
tuition which would put many of the world's leading computer training 
courses and degree courses to shame.

(I also don't recognise your description of the academic community; 
anecdote vs anecdote but your experience was clearly quite different 
from mine)
