I may agree with the decission, but not in the form. The board can not
decide for all in something so important as taking a political stance.
Ooh, get over it. And the same goes for Guido, Denver and Per, by the

A significant proportion of our user- and contributor base could be cut

web, including sites like Wikipedia, is going black. In a public IRC
