Given Jeff Williams track history and the number of warnings he has had
I find it hard to believe anyone would find the suspension excessive.
It does also not prove any "inclusive" intentions.

How is it any different to any of the other pledges that nearly all have
some strings attached?  You have supported a pledge where the pledge was
spent with only an assumption of agreement and no discussion, which is
far worse IMHO.

The point being there isn't an AtLarge at present, the existance has
been denied.  So it is not an entity at this time.  All contributions
for forming one should be given weighty consideration and not blown out
of proportion to the intent.
