Re: [ga] [admin] Posting rights of Jeff Williams temporarily suspended
Two months, really? I think that's stronger than nickle whiskey.
I think this is well beyond the spirit of the rules, too.
I don't even know Williams and I don't agree with what he posts much
of the time, but I do respect his individual right to be heard.
Consensus and censorship don't seem to compute, either.
This is a time when the GA needs to be pulling together, in light of
Accura and the indiscriminate and self-serving actions of ICANN.
Now is not the time to be implementing censorship or anything else to
divide the GA.
Don't kill the troops. Lead them . . .
p.s. This is #5 for me, today. It will be better in the morning, as
they say . . .
