It is rude and disrespectful to go to someone else’s home and continue to prosthelytize your beliefs when previously told “sorry, no, those beliefs are incompatible with mine”.

This community will (most often politely) inform people when their ideas are incompatable with one of the fundamental tennants of Open Source.  If people insist on continuing to disrespect the community by trying to unethically get around the fundamental tennants of Open Source, then the pushback will become harder and harsher.   People can't disrespect a community, and then get upset when harsh words are eventually used to defend the community.
