I generally agree with your comments, but I feel compelled to interject a small note. While I agree we must consider whether any given node will reflect badly on Perl Monks as a community, I'm not sure that controversial nodes should be kept under wraps. For example, the node from Juerd may have started out as an internal squabble, but it evolved into a very interesting discussion about free speech, community, and the rights of the many vs. the rights of the few. I don't necessarily think new visitors should be sheltered from this. These are (in my opinion) among the most thought-provoking debates to come out of our community, and they definitely give a "flavor" of what PerlMonks is all about.
