Nicolas,

What are you asking for exactly? Are you asking for a member code of conduct governing the OSMF mailing list that can extend to a third party service? Or maybe that we should be in the business of censoring Dale’s right to express his opinions on a third party service? Please clarify what you expect the community to do because I’m confused here.

Cheers,
Marc
