Hi all,

Paolo Vecchi wrote on 26/05/2023 11:07:

I'm writing here to discuss the actions of members of the Board against another Director (myself).

Fact: five directors and a deputy were shocked by the behavior of one director who, in his inability to accept board procedures and his inability to accept that his opinion is not always right, decided to (again) disclose legal correspondence in the open.

Paolo is making things up. He never stops pushing his way, up to disclosing legal stuff (again) and more. There is no way to discuss legal matters in the open. As such the measure was needed (due to past form), and rather low/proportionate as he can still post answers.

He did sent exactly the same text as here to the tdf-internal@ list where members can subscribe and discuss*. I have replied more in detail there.

Please also consider to ask the Board of Directors to revert the changes they made to the Board Discuss forum. They limit the right of expression not only to a specific board member, but also to the rest of the community, because nobody can send messages there anymore without moderation.

Only creating of topics on Board-Discuss is limited. On Discourse, that was the mildest way to achieve the necessary results, in combination with revoking moderator rights. We didn't want to silence/remove Paolo. That would be the only other way to control this in Discourse, AFAIK.
