If by "like this" you mean "flamewar", no. But if you mean "passionate",
definitely. :-) One of the great things about GNOME in recent years is its
friendly, co-operative culture. Most of our flamewars, when they happen, are
like this last one - fast, passionate, focused, resolvable, and although it
may not always seem like it, amicable.

If you're after a pretty high-volume, active list of things being done on a
broad scale, d-d-l is the list to be on. If you're interested in the people
*and* development sides of GNOME, track the Planet GNOME and FootNotes
websites. :-)
