I understand that to mean (at least) that for communication, every message
must be both sent and received. So when constructing a message, it is
important to think about how others will understand it.
On a public email list there are an awful lot of "others", and it is very
likely that any possible misunderstanding will be experienced by someone.
I think it best to minimise opportunities for misunderstanding.

I think that is not relevant. He is scolding people senior developers in
front of newcomers. That is not likely to encourage people to want to become
senior developers.

Anecdote: My son (in highschool) is doing a psych assignment where he is
asking people to complete a survey which, among other things, asks about
people fear/anxiety response to various situations (it is a fairly standard
instrument I think[1]). Last few times he checked, the situation with the
highest average score was "One person bullying another". Really, it isn't
nice to watch.
