Depends on how you define "personal", I suppose. I personally _like_ 
hearing people exchange greetings & reposts about trips, assignments,
projects, etc. - even though I have not (to my knowledge) met any of
these folks personally.

You should see a _real_ internet chat group (I spend a lot of time in, where biologists do battle with biblical literalists)! 

While not everyone here is civil to the point of prissiness, the 
discourse here has been (at least since I started subscribing) polite 
and friendly. And if your tolerance for "ANY" lack of courtesy is that 
low, may I suggest that you take what you're reading on this mailing 
list a tad less seriously?
