You asked, and so a little bit of Googling produces these:

perhaps http://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2005/03/msg00378.html
(which I would call devoid of useful information but heavy in insults)

Lately, I try to not make note of people behaving badly; there are too
many instances for worrying over it to be healthy, and most people
balance it out over time.  Even though I personally tend to ignore
Andrew Suffield, I think an organized effort to killfile _anyone_ is a
misguided application of social pressure.  If the alleged misbehavior
is not so systematic that everyone can see it, it is not bad enough to
warrant ostracism.
