I have to second this one as well.

In fact I blogged about this some time ago:


nicely of course, but the reality was that for 2 years, I got slammed  
and treated badly by the folks who started it, and then once I made  
them sit down and explain the process, I was able to follow the  
rules.  But it was harsh.  Many people commented privately to me  
after the two blog posts on process that it helped them a lot because  
they had the same experience.

I don't see why hazing helps the process.  You can have high  
standards without being mean.
