Eric Hughes starts his essay with a question. He asks "Can we get over the collective delusion that we have to be nice to everybody we meet on the internet?" I did not know that this was a collective delusion. And has the opposite be the case, that we just do no try to be nice.

But after this flying start, Eric leads us through reflections about conflict and the forming of a community.

This evening, I posted in a comment my idea about forming a community around and with a software-program inside Usenet. Not the idea itself.

Eric hopes that Discordia will also becomes a community in the original meaning of the word. But he is afraid of to much openness.

To unveil my idea a bit: this idea gives room to all openess, and still people help each other to find the treasures, they are looking for.

I hope the Eric and Geert will join my "Vereniging", at least taste its kidneys.
