As I wrote, I don't know what happens when someone starts acting that
way. I think this is hurting the community and creating chasms where
bridges are trying to be built. And I'm not referring to any
scare to non-existent technical parts of the statements made.

Sure, and a part of it probably stems from Jeff Johnson, whose
comments escalated to the board and people wanted to withdraw his
bugzilla account (I'm far from recommending doing so in this case,
don't misunderstand me, I'm just showing that sometimes some reaction
is needed).

Technical issues and different opinions on them is one (good) thing,
but that wasn't it. Censoring is - as said - even worse.
