I probably should have said this before.  I personally have become violent
and started fights because people have insulted me (though only in bars and
similar settings, not in a cohousing setting, and not recently).  The reason
that I think anger should not be expressed through yelling etc is certainly
not because I'm not capable of inappropriate expressions of anger myself.  I
am.  It's never gotten me what I wanted, and in a cohousing setting, I've
never seen it get anyone else what they want either.

I think we need to agree to differ.
