And it a site makes a regular business of attacking Wikipedians, not criticizing, but attacking, I will oppose linking to the site at all. I can see only good coming out of supporting other editors and only harm coming out of tolerating their humiliation.
Exactly right.

I want to clarify that when I wrote above that the BADSITES proposal
worked on the principle that the best way to get rid of a bad law is
to enforce it, I meant that this was the mindset of the proposer, not
that I agreed with it. It seems to have been a strawman proposal,
intended only to cause arguments, and it was singularly successful in
that regard.
