I don't recall the TC ever changing the maintainership of a package
because of abusive communications by the maintainer.  Or indeed, ever,
apart from in one exceptional case where the existing maintainer
intended to remove the package and the TC gave the package to someone
who wanted to become the maintainer so it could be kept.
