I think the explanation is quite aggressive and has absolutely nothing to do inside a git log, to be honest.

The fact that you disagree on the commit is fine, but being passive aggressive on a commit log is not OK, in my humble opinion. Especially when it will be in the history forever, and cannot be removed.

Moreover, a revert should go through the mailing list like normal patches, and that's again, my opinion.
