I didn't criticized the security policy itself. That was more than overdue.
Again, Mr. Troup rejected my security concerns about having the passwords in
cleartext on buildd.d.o in failed build logs.
So far to security.

It's not about agreeing to that specific policy, but about how that got
communicated and how future cooperation with Mr. Troup should look like. When
he is not willing to cooperate with others (i.e. me, having me in ignore and
mailfilters), then I feel that it's not worth to agree to that policy because
the next problem will come sooner or later.
There's a problem (with Mr. Troup) and it needs to get addressed properly.
