Quote regarding Rust:

For newbs/outsiders looking in, I think a lot of it has to do with a culture of validating people's experiences. That's difficult. If a user complains about it, the natural reaction can easily be to go defensive ("You're doing it wrong" or "we documented that here"). Rust has successfully fostered a culture of approaching it as an opportunity to learn something ("Why did you not see the documentation").

We should do that.

Everyone is coming from different cultures with different language skills. Assume perceived rudeness is due to different social norms or poorer English skills. Perhaps assume the person has 3 children running around screaming while they filed the bug report. All these attributes stack the deck against them contributing, so try to be especially kind, patient, and grateful, even though your initial response may be the opposite.
