I've not seen any of it, but would like to ask everybody to not become
too trigger-happy abusing this process (although it's formally not my
job to do so), re-iterating what is outlined in the quoted email.

I've seen a lot of other developers behaving in ways I tend to consider
childish and aggressive, at least from where I stand, and also expect
them to have similar opinions about me, but if we are now in a round of
forcing some undefined "well-behavedness" on a group of people who are
as disparate as you can probably find, we'll quickly end up no longer
being 'we, the Debian project', but only (say) a half of it who can
subscribe to the winning brand of moral, and whose claims to such
subscriptions are accepted by the remaining majority.

I'd consider this a *big* loss.

The project is still large enough that you (anyone) can always work
around such a problem by turning towards other tasks in the project
which allow you to bypass him (and the other way round, too).
