I haven't expressed any opinion on those broad principle at all, and don't
have an opinion to express.  My reaction to that statement is "mu."

Primarily we should promote this by example, not by argument.  :)

We should define our values and then live up to them.  Sactions or
punishments are a tool.  I'm not particularly attracted to that tool over
a host of other tools, although I wouldn't rule it out as an appropriate
tool in some situations.

Note that I don't consider temporary bans from mailing lists to be either
sanctions or punishment.

Not really.  :)
