It doesn't matter; Steve Langasek was very clear in asking Sven to
take the discussion elsewhere away from the debian-release
list. d-release is not a place for off-topic discussion, regardless of
any claimed provocation. Steve is one of our RMs, so his word should
count when it comes to blocking people from the -release mailing list
IMHO.
