makes me wonder whether he's such a machiavellian sociopath, or a useful
idiot.

Thats fairly benign and doubt it had anything to do with being blocked on
github.

Note, the board member who blocked your GIthub account and deleted your
post there
also voiced their opinion as being...
    For me a "welcome and be nice" should be enough to just continue as
before.
    I find the introduction of CoC was a noise we didn't need,
    our community was doing well and self-regulated without problem until
now.

So in spite of your implication, I doubt there is anything sinister from
the CoC in play here.
Comments such as  "makes me wonder whether he's such a machiavellian
sociopath, or a useful idiot."
have been consistently condemned years before thought of a CoC.

Its not that you are a "nobody", but actually you were "unknown to us" two
days ago.
Maybe you don't know Serge, but we've know him for years and his good work
including governance of our GSoC participation
so please consider why such comments from a newcomer may be dealt with as a
troll.
Community standards do not maintain themselves: They're maintained by
people actively applying them, visibly, in public.

Now personally I'm not going to condemn you on one slip.
I've been told to pull my head in before and they were right - I was
venting after a bad day at work.  But no one held it against me long.
These nontechnical and emotion-charge debates are infrequent and I hope get
a chance to see how things normally run once we are past it.
