Anybody with any experience of cyberbullying or harassment wouldn't
simply cringe at this, they would be looking on in horror at the very
existence of these "monster threads" in a community that is so
influential and respected as Debian.

Please take a moment and think about what is the worst that eventually
happens when a community (or it's leader) abuses members in this way


The people who unleashed this monster need to take responsibility.  They
have created and sustained this state of hostility, since 20 September,
every other wayward communication that has come up is a consequence of
that.  No member of this community should ever have been expected to
bear such a heavy burden.

Stop this now.  Make sure it never happens again in Debian.  It is that
