It is offensive to many people, myself included.

But mainly it's offtopic for that list (as well as all other Debian
lists).  That's why I said "inappropriate".  That list is widely read
my many people outside the project, including many corporations.  As a
result, it is damaging to the reputation and good standing of the
project, as well as being an abuse of the project's public
announcement lists.

I was perfectly serious.  This is merely the latest in a number of
things Mr Suffield has done which are detrimental to the project in a
number of ways.  Some of these are not a matter of public record, so
you would be unaware of them.  It is not this one incident which is
resulting in this, but rather several years of incidents of varying
severity, some rather worse than this.
