In most of the technical computer newsgroups which I frequent, there is
a handful of knowledgeable and helpful but irritable regulars, and often
one or two saints who contribute usefully, ignore rudeness and almost
never post off topic.

I find it best to treasure the saints, tolerate the irritable and ignore
the whiners.

YMMV.
