Nick is also pretty good at making people feel like he both knows and
*cares* about their breakage, and isn't just dismissing their concerns
as trivial or unimportant.  Breakage isn't trivial or unimportant to
the person who's yelling, so this is an important
community-maintenance skill.  It builds trust, and reduces the total
amount of yelling.
