Brett, you might have missed my comment about wanting to avoid unhelpful
arguments about tone, but if you are going to complain about people's
tone, the considerate thing to do is to say what it is that you're
objecting to.

The phrasing of "just sounding like an asshole who wants to shut people up" is unnecessary.

Otherwise we're left guessing as to what it is and whether or not you
are making an implied threat to apply the CoC.

No implied "threat". If it was an official warning then I would have said so.

I responded to Antoine's post earlier, but thought that it was a
respectful disagreement. Do you think that's not the case?

I think it skirts the edge of being disrespectful, hence the request to please be aware of how one comes across.
