From: "Doug Ewell" <dewell(_at_)adelphia(_dot_)net>
I wish that everyone who trivializes Harald's proposal as a matter of
"personal dislike" or "silencing anyone with a different opinion"
have experienced life in the LTRU Working Group for the past 6 months,
where list members were constantly insulted for being Americans or for
being employed by large companies, where "resolved" and out-of-scope
issues were raised over and over again, and where list members became
wary of posting anything at all, for fear their words would be twisted
to mean something completely different. It would not have been
tolerated in any face-to-face working environment.
I concur. This is not IMO a matter of personal dislike. Mr. Morfin has
made some positive contributions to the LTRU WG which have been
appreciated. But those were more than offset by regular and repeated
occurrences of the kinds of behaviours Harald and Doug have described.
It *has* hindered the WG, and repeated requests for change in behaviour
have been of no avail.
