I think that mailing lists work like football games in that respect. In
a football game, if the referee makes any decision, however stupid it
may be, players are expected to follow that decision (and afterwards one
can discuss the decision in detail).

A player responding to a referee's decision with a cocky request for an
explanation, or a cocky explanation of why the player believes the
decision doesn't apply to him, will be excluded from the game.

Should it later turn out the the original decision of the referee was
wrong, then the exclusion of the player was still rule-conforming
because the player had opposed the referee.

Might not be fair but it's the rules, and without them, referees would
be pretty useless.
