Where I am happy to return to should this be the way this mailing list becomes again.
But you seem to think that I am speaking from a mistaken assumption of being a "leader" here or something. I assume no such thing. You have contributed a lot more than I have in a long, long time. It's not the point though.
I speak because nobody else does and because to the best of my experience someone needs to.
Not because I particularly believe one email will change you or your behaviour, but because it is necessary to show: if someone makes an unpopular argument, or offends someone or whatever on this list in one discussion that doesn't mean they will stand alone if they are hounded in retaliation in other contexts. (it is also not about everyone else being angels and in the best possible way communcating their opinions, that would not be a reasonable goal)
Though it might not hurt if you consider that your style sometimes means that even people agreeing with you on (technical) principles can't really side with you.
I'd love if you'd now start to go all for the non-agressive way of getting support for your position, but that's just me being a hopeless idealist and as said not the point.

Sorry for disturbing anyone's fun with too much philosophy ;)
