Mr. Wales,
  The debate is not over whether editors should be inflammatory and divisive, but over whether expressing personal opinions and (recently) making jokes in the user's own userpage that no one is required to read using pages residing in the Template: namespace is a valid example of behaving in a divisive and inflammatory manner.  I think George W. Bush is a criminal, if you feel offended by that then by all means stay off my userpage, why do you have to go delete templates? Templates are obviously no more official than userpages since any person can create either.
  What's more, some admins even speedy userboxes in the userpage as recreations of deleted content and this has been supported by ArbCom 8-1 or 9-0 (can't remember which) in a famous userbox hearing. So the matter is not even whether one can express personal opinions in template space, but also whether one can express personal opinions in user space. No one is debating whether editors should be divisive and inflammatory, don't make it appear so.
