As was pointed out at the time, that was not a violation of some code of
conduct, but a violation of the DMUP[1], which you were supposed to have
read, understood and signed the moment you became a Debian Developer.

The DMUP is not a ritual about politeness, but a prerequisite that makes
it possible for Debian to run its infrastructure.

I invite you to please take a moment to read it again. Further mistakes
of that kind from you will not be tolerated, as far as I am concerned.
