How to Protect Your Open Source Project from Poisonous People

I saw a fantastic talk yesterday: How to Protect Your Open Source Project from Poisonous People. If you help run an open source project, this is a must see.

I was there sitting next to JJ, and I'd just like to second that. To me, it was the best talk at the whole Google IO conference.

I like the four traits of a healthy project:

humility
respect
politeness
trust

I don't want any part of a community that isn't carefully fostering that. I have noticed Grok for example, is a great community, as these traits are present.
