Hi Community,

Unfortunately, it seems posts get frequently flagged in the
board-discuss forum, where currently also the behavior of some board
members is criticized and discussed. I hate this form of limiting
discussions and censorship. It's not appropriate to a free software project.

Hi Thorsten, hi all,

   Hi Paolo,


       Is the decision to send out that vote with those issues your own
       or it has been taken by the “shadow board”?

   It is ok to disagree with the policy (although a lot of effort went
   into drafting it). But “shadow board”, really? Next thing will be
   you accusing staff of being the “deep state”?

the last sentence is offensive towards Paolo and all members of staff.

I personally (with some experience in people’s management) wouldn’t even
have thought about such a labeling of members of staff.

The above sentence seemed to show the real view of the author on the
members of staff. And it shows that he expects a bad person behind every
corner. That is no ground for building a winning team.

Your repeated bad (and not only inappropriate) behavior towards people
with other opinions, including the members of TDF staff, is already
sufficient and broad documented and confirmed by many community members.

No community could and should tolerate such behavior. In any company or
institution, you would have been released of your management duties
immediately, to protect people’s mental (and physical) health and

It is a shame and not in any case tolerable, that the majority of the
board, except Paolo and Emiliano (who are not members of the ‘shadow
board’) are not taking actions immediately.

If some of the members of the ‘shadow board’ own a spark of integrity,
they could prove that now and take the necessary actions immediately.
