Agreed 100%. However,

I am afraid that may send a wrong message: if you annoy the entire
list enough, even if you are the main source of the trouble, the
guilty gets discounted to 50% level. In my view it is not fair to
allow someone to piss off people like that and get the situation
"reset" all of sudden just because everyone is sick of the crap. I am
also sick of it. I don't see an overwhelming need to consider
fairness. But I do see some need to consider fairness.
