Yes, of course people and (legal) entities are responsible for their
actions. I just don't see how this would be very relevant to any issue
at hand. I guess I mistook your statement to mean a potential
collective responsibility over the actions of an individual.

Let me elaborate. Let's say that I insulted you publicly on some
Debian mailing list. I of course would be responsible, and you could
sue me in a Finnish court (and maybe even in some foreign court, too,
but you would not get me to appear there). You couldn't, however, sue
e.g. the listmasters (or, well, you could sue but I think you'd get
thrown out pretty fast).

But, IANAL, too.
