I strongly agree. The list I'm most active on, FISHFOLK, has been remarkably
free of flame wars, and I believe this is due in large part to the fact that
a large portion of at least the active members actually know each other in
person as well as on the list.

In addition to meeting occasionally, remember that Danny Yee has some
biographies on his home page (whose address I have on my other computer).
Reading those, and adding to them might help as well.
