It's not about a badge, or DDs being "special" (spoiler: we're not),
or us giving some great honor by gracing him with our company, it's
about safety.

I am not comfortable with him around, in whatever form. I don't want
people like that in my community -- a community where my guard is

Illegal or not, even if he's productive or not (which I don't think he
is), his presence will result in contributors feeling less safe and
less able to do work they're spending their free time doing.

This is the same "crybullying" as before. Note the "feeling" rhetoric, and how the crybully is "not comfortable" with the target of his current lynching effort.

Note that the context (elided for length here) shows that Tagliamonte is standing for his desired lynching of Appelbaum against what seems to me to be three-in-a-row of people calling out this behavior and reminding him that virtual lynching is still wrong. One even compares the events to the actions of Anonymous and tries to remind him that Debian is not like that.
