Ah, yes. The community attitude.

Well, we're not too numerous to fight link-spamming comments, to discuss
the organisation's future and... organisation -- and of course to put a
smile on everyone's face for the sake of a friendly atmosphere (wink to
Madhu here, who isn't working in the web sphere anymore but who stuck to
evolt nonetheless).
