We do already expect people to behave in a friendly but professional manner. If you think there's a person who is acting in an unprofessional manner -- outside of the Meaningless Drivel forum, in which unprofessionalism is expected -- please report the person to a sheriff by private message. The sheriff will have a little chat with them and explain our community standards without embarrassing the person or betraying your identity.
