Or perhaps people with an overly-condescending attitude are making this
list a less friendly place?

Personally, I used to highly commend haskell-cafe for being such a
friendly place.  After catching up on it after a bit of a vacation, I'm
not so sure about that anymore.  Perhaps that is a price of failing to
avoid success, but I wish it weren't.

Couldn't you have said that in a bit of a more polite way?  Perhaps
without spewing it to thousands of readers while you're at it?
