Criticizing your work is not an attack on you. Even saying "Automatix is
a piece of crap" is not a personal attack. You can justifiably say that
this would be an inappropriate comment, but it is not an ad hominem. An
adhominem would require a reference to you as a person.

On the other hand, you've done worse to other people, including myself.
The problem with attacking someone who asks a legitimate question is
that they are very unlikely to take your side in the future. Seeding
resentment is a poor long-term strategy. It might make you lose out in
the future for purely non-technical reasons.
For example, if Automatix and EasyUbuntu turn out to be completely
identical in every technical respect, I would support EasyUbuntu purely
because I got a good feeling for the maintainers of EasyUbuntu and a
poor feeling of the maintainer of Automatix.

That is inconsequential. You (and us) are allowed on this list as a
guest. Access to this mailing list is a priviledge, not a right. This
priviledge can be removed for failing to abide by the CoC.
