I agree with that statement.

Consequently, I agree that the above would be a shame.

However, I disagree here -- Debian has a code of conduct that says
they won't behave the same way within Debian, and listmasters,
conference organisers and others are ensuring that people who /do/
behave in those ways are removed from Debian (temporarily or
permanently as seems appropriate). That's how you can know they won't
behave the same way in Debian.
