You have four people asking basically the same question, and you
wonder about this?

For reference, Debian is a distributed project. Mailing lists are our
main means of communication. This discussion is far away from a flame
war and it would surely pass any sane code of conduct anybody could
impose on us without half of the project retiring.

If this discussion places an unbearable burden on you, why are you
running for a job that does require communication, communication, and
communication instead of finding a position in Debian where you can do
things where you can excel at, like technical and conceptional stuff,
without being bothered by those pesky little colleagues who require
you to actually report about your doings?
