It is my experience as well that, almost everyone is nice and accept
NMU, but there's always a few instances of moronic reactions. I try keep
in mind that other uploads out-weight them, but the toll on the moral of
such very strong reaction is often high.

I also often feel like there's useless loss of time. Not sure how to fix
this. :(

I would find it super nice if we made a collective decision to have such
packaging git workflow standards. This, together with a patch review
system like Gerrit would be a game changer. Though I've seen a lot of
resistance to even git ...
