I happen to be on Twitter so you just called me a moron, Mark (as well as
many other core developers).

While I think Stefan's response was uncalled for, he at least felt like the
injured party and thus his response could potentially be attributed an
impassioned response that should not have occurred. IOW while I understand
why the reaction occurred, that doesn't excuse it while warranting a
warning of that fact and that it shouldn't be considered acceptable
behaviour overall.

Your response, though, definitely crossed a line as you were insulting as
well as not directly involved in the issue at hand, which means you had no
direct motivation to be upset other than to prove a point and be rude
entirely on purpose. IOW you were just piling on the rudeness for no good

For that reason, consider this a warning from me that this kind of
behaviour is simply not acceptable. If it happens again I will request at
least a 2 month ban for you from the mailing list.
