I think it has no negative impact on my reputation with anyone whose
opinion I value.

Which most explicitly does not include you.

You use this mailing list as your own personal soap box for advancing
positions that have been *rejected* by Debian.  That is not acceptable.
The purpose of this list is to help Debian developers and upstreams
understand Debian's policy for the main archive, and as a forum for Debian
as a whole to work on refining that policy.  You don't appear to contribute
anything to Debian except the crap you spew on this mailing list.  You are
therefore *not* part of Debian.  "IANADD" disclaimers do *not* excuse you
abusing this list in order to shove your opinions down others' throats, when
you know damn well that the project does not agree with you.

So shut up already.

I would be much happier with having debian-legal shut down than with
continuing a status quo that permits opinionated hangers-on like you to
repeatedly twist the discussion to suit your personal agenda.
