They were simple questions. I asked them because I care, not because I
am planning to defend a status quo.

Maybe instead you have come to expect a certain "Gentoo tone" to
accompany the silent letters of an e-mail? I certainly didn't put that
tone in there.

What I think but didn't initially say:

1) that there are probably some good examples of the bad tone that sping
referred to, perhaps in the devrel/userrel domain and therefore not
initially public, and that unless those projects fail (to uphold the
CoC), we should probably not be talking about it on a public mailing
list.

2) that "tone" is unavoidably a subjective matter, which is precisely
the reason that some in our community choose consciously to be concise,
informative and dispassionate, while you might infer that this results
in curt, graceless and unaffectionate communication, or "bad tone" in
short.
