I join Alexander on the above.

I suggest we keep things civil, with respect for the persons involved.  It's
really not up to Debian to harm someone's reputation, and that could reflect
bad on Debian's reputation.

Approaches I could support :
- post the bans with reasons on debian-private
- or maintain a list of bans with reasons in a text file on a Debian machine
  where DDs can read this info.
