  You're not the only one. There are certain people in the mailing lists and 
blogs I frequent who strike me as particularly prickly. I often learn a lot 
from them, though, so I consider it a worthwhile tradeoff, and have learned 
not to take their comments as being personally directed (perhaps erroneously, 
but that's how I deal with it!). 
   I've heard that people from different cultural backgrounds tend to take 
radically different approaches to postings, either becoming demure and 
cloying, or speaking much more directly. Eastern Europeans (so I have read on 
a different list) are wont to be very direct in a way that Americans (for 
example) think too direct, but take that with a large grain of anecdotal 
salt. I like to think that people who are prickly in cyberspace tend to be 
the same way in meatspace. Makes for an interesting stew.
