I can't agree with a few of your assertions...

"Uppercase letters (which in software developer´s world means as much as "shouting")"
In this post, only a few words were uppercase, to me this indicates that he was drawing attention to the importance of those words, not shouting them. Putting a whole sentence in uppercase would be considered shouting.

"I am sure you are intelligent enough to understand this."
This one could easily be misunderstood. If used sarcastically then yes it could be considered offensive, however, in this case I believe it was used sincerely, and no offence was intended.

For me the only hatred/intolerance in this particular discussion was from Mark Parity (and not so much on the hatred), all other members of the discussion did so with an honest desire to discuss the issue openly, which is rare.

Edit..
"While - in my opinion - Munchies_Matt seems to oppose SoapBox rule no. 4, this very thread opposes SoapBox rule no. 5. Just to mention."
I don't agree that Munchies_Matt is trying to inflame pointlessly, his posts seem to me to be a genuine desire to discuss the issues.
And I don't agree that this thread opposes rule 5, If it was started by Munchies_Matt after having been banned, then yes it would.
