Being self congratulatory is a bit of a minefield, the tolerance level
before its seen as negative varies from culture to culture and person
to person.

In a volunteer contributed newsletter I don't think we can expect
contributors to take all this into account, and we don't have a
specific editorial board to review it, so I think they really can only
write from their own point of view.
