It needs to be pointed out that Thomas Wouters was recently re-elected to the PSF board. I think we need to know whether Thomas speaks for the entire PSF board.Giampaolo feared this:
"It's gonna happen again and again, until everybody gets in line, shuts up or leaves due to exhaustion."
and Thomas replied:
"I'm not sure how much more clear python-dev and the PSF could have been that this is true."
So is it true? Do the core devs and the PSF have a policy of pushing divisive political changes to silence and force out of the community people who are guilty of thought-crime and holding the wrong opinion on political matters?
I think that Thomas' post violated the CoC:
* not open, considerate, or respectful;
* dismissive of Giampaolo's efforts;
* not respectful of differing viewpoints;
* lacking empathy towards others with alternative perspectives.
The CoC doesn't mention the word "tolerant" or "tolerance", but there was nothing of either in Thomas' post. And coming from a PSF Board member, I think that is extremely worrying.

I'm not sure who 'our' is in this sentence, but I'm certainly not glad Python ever took any of your patches.
You know, I don't care (and few people probably care) what you think personally of other core developers. But that you aren't even able to keep those thoughts for yourself and instead think it's ok to launch vitriolic attacks publicly, doesn't reflect very well on you.
Personally, I'm glad Giampaolo contributes to the project, as well as to the community (psutil is invaluable). And I think you should just police yourself instead of attacking him personally.
We want to be more welcoming, not less --
But do you *personally*? You certainly do not sound like you want to be "more welcoming". Your belliquous attitude doesn't support that. You sound like you have an axe to grind.
If your stated intentions are contradicted by your own behaviour, you're doing it wrong.
