Because Russ seems to be arguing that Debian should be sanctioning
Linus's behaviours in fora outside of Debian's control by banning him
from Debian events.
That's equivalent to the United States trying to exert extratoriality
of its laws outside of its borders. Does Debian have the *right* to
do that? Sure. It's Debian's "right". Just as the United States as
the right to imprison anyone it wants, even for crimes committed
outside its borders, so long as it goes through its own internal court
systems. That might not make it just or moral.
