...and telling Ben Collins to "take a Valium" after what appeared to be a
pretty even-handed message

...calling Joey Hess "jumped up" and being generally rude in response to a
justifiably exasperated message about a long-standing problem, which was
accompanied by a standing offer to assist any developer with interfacing
with debconf

...and stating that you'll "use debconf how [you] please and if that's
against the 'pure' view of others [...] then its [sic] just hard luck".

The first two being insulting to the developers involved, and the third
being insulting to the spirit of cooperation and consensus that the project
as a whole depends on.
