If the facts truly are like that (I don't know if they are, but that's
irrelevant to my point), rudeness is still not the answer. It lets one
party blow off steam and get a small amount of sadistic satisfaction, at
the expense of the other party's feelings and thus the only thing it
accomplishes, especially in the Debian context, is a rude reaction. This
creates a vicious circle of rudeness and accomplishes nothing

(I'm talking about a general point, not a specific case.)
