While I agree with Antoine that the wording by Serhiy on Twitter was
unnecessary, the tone in responses here are also unnecessary. As has been
discussed both here on this mailing list and at the PyCon US language
summit, reacting to actual or perceived rudeness with more rudeness is not
reasonable behaviour. If something upsets you and you want to discuss it
then that's fine, but wait until you can do so with a cool head (I avoided
personal email for 2 days because of this email thread in order to not
react harshly to it myself).
IOW believing you have been disrespected does suddenly give you permission
to be disrespectful as well. That simply leads to everyone not caring about
your complaint and this whole environment ends up feeling hostile.
