My advice would be to ignore him when the discussion proceeds in an
unproductive direction.

But I never wanted to tell other people what to do with respect to
Felipe. My point was to express public agreement with Jonathan, and show
that individual members of the community may be less interested in
helping you if you behave in certain ways. At this point, I do not have
any hope of impacting Felipe's behavior, but I thought it might be
demonstrative to other list members.  We do not have an explicit code of
conduct on the list, but it is not as if behavior is without
consequences. If you are not easy to work with, people will get tired of
dealing with you eventually[1].


[1] Or maybe not. Maybe there are enough people interested in what
    Felipe has to say that he will continue to get review. I even try to
    review his patches myself when there is something factually and
    obviously wrong to point out, and it won't suck me into a
    time-wasting argument that goes nowhere.

    But the point is that each individual can make the choice
    themselves, and then the problem is solved for them.
