That wasn't about you or anyone here, if I had a specific problem with 
someone I would say it, for the same reasons I appreciate skippy's 
original email said "Matt" instead of abstractly referring to the 
specific person he had in mind.

It was more a general observation about creating a pleasant and fun 
environment for people to participate in. You catch more flies with 
honey than vinegar and all that. I'm sorry if you thought it was talking 
about you. By definition I would think that non-masochists continue to 
participate in WordPress because they get something out of it. I think 
that's different for every person, and we should encourage whatever it is.
