As written in the message we sent you, none of the issues linked, taken
singularly, would be worth of taking action, but taken all together they
represent a long recurring trend.

The reason we took action is because:

That is not an acceptable behaviour in a community that is built by the
cooperation of a diverse range of skills and people.

Also, we could see, while considering the situation, that this kind of
trend is not just a thing of the past. As we wrote here:

This was another, recent repetition of the trend of attacking the people who
raised issues instead of listening to them. In particular, this part of
your reply to the antiharassment team, that you chose to leave out when
reposting it here on -project:

I hope this helps make sense of our decision.
