No, it's not. Tone policing is about requiring you to remain calm. All we are 
trying to say (and what the Code of Conduct that you are required to follow 
says) is that you must be respectful towards people. Moreover, Miry was *not* 
saying that the line *had* been crossed, she said that we're getting "quite 
close". Emotion is allowed. Just don't attack people, as per the CoC. Besides, 
being trans, I am not speaking from a position of privilege in this particular 
context, not that I think it even matters here.
