That was an attempt to say that people shouldn't be thrown out of Debian
just because they routinely spout invectives.  If cannot infer whether
or not you feel insulted to be characterized as such.

Ah, senility has taken hold.  I had forgotten that Anthony Towns is the
only Release Manager that Debian has ever had.

I imagine that AJ has a thicker skin than you think he does.
Furthermore, it is ludicrous to try and mandate sycophancy toward a DPL
delegate, regardless of whether or not that delegate makes such claims as
that bugs that were release-critical because they violated the old Social
Contract can no longer be ignored because of the new Social Contract.
