Unfortunately, there will always be people like that in life. Personally, I just try to speak to people the way I would like to be spoken to, and, on more than one occasion, I've seen some pretty vitriolic posters calm down and become quite reasonable when someone has responded to a caps-laden ragepost in a mature and sensible way.

Ultimately, I think it's up to the moderate, reasonable posters on a forum to lead by example and demonstrate the kind of behaviour that's acceptable, instead of falling to the temptation to flame right back at them
