Sven shows some class in an RfA:

"Oppose Major temperament concerns. I gave the candidate a chance to answer the question, and he did not. The question removed after he had answered other questions, so I know he saw it and simply chose to avoid it. Sven Manguard Wha? 22:04, 23 December 2012 (UTC) "

Here is the low attack: "Your interaction in the past with certain female editors over IRC has been characterized as inappropriate and creepy, and your response to the concerns that other editors voiced over those interactions has been unsatisfactory. While these conversations seem to have stopped by 2012, there is still concern over them. How would you respond to this concern? "

As someone who knew both on IRC, the one that was truly creepy was always Sven. Kevin, however, not so much. If Malleus would have made such a blatantly nasty personal attack and such a blatantly libelous statement, we would have an ArbCom case. However, since Sven is an IRC, troll he gets a pass.
