He isn't.  He's imposing his standards on this mailing list, in order
to solve a particular problem.  He's even indicated that he's willing
to make some provision to accomodate people who have said that they
will be inconvenienced, though he's not able to do so immediately.

If you are unable to run your mail server with sufficent uptime to
meet Jay's definition of "good net citizen", or don't wish to do so,
you're free to start your own mailing list, since as you yourself have
said (in capital letters, no less) you have "SOVEREIGNTY".

That's completely uncalled for.
