Through the New Maintainer process, which isn't exactly everyone *and*
which requires that anyone joining agrees to a fairly extensive set of
conduct guidelines.  Because of that, I'm not convinced by this
counter-argument, except possibly for those messages sent to
debian-private back when it was far easier to join the project (and even
still, I think there was always a weeding factor).
