It's your right to have such an opinion, but it's not the question at
hand. The point I raised is: is it appropriate to assume that a fellow
maintainer is "braindead" or "stupid", or rather assume that he made an
honest mistake?

Is it appropriate to use terms like "fucking" and "damn" on a wide
audience mailinglist, or could you send them a polite message if you
don't agree with their way of configuring their lists?

I'm pretty sure which path I'd take, and I'm also pretty sure which path
would be best to improve the atmosphere between Debian developers.
