Same as Joseph, that's what I disagree with. We are not 'mincing words' and
using a 'deflection tactic'. The reason we are discussing form is the form
of Severin's message not it's content.
It's also a bit strange to assume I, or others here, have a tactic and an
agenda that needs defending. I'm just a member of the OSMF who sees another
member treated without respect and I can't resist speaking out anymore.
Should we limit discussion just to those that can deliver their opinions in
> perfect form?
Yes, but without the word 'perfect'. I do believe we should limit the
discussions in form but not content. We obviously don't need perfection,
just common decency. Is that so much to ask?
Every time, really every time Severin has spoken out about HOT in public,

Exactly, it's normal we're discussing this every time because it's the same
every time. Next time we'll probably have the same discussion, why not just
send a decent message so we can discuss content?
It's interesting, should a board member be a devoted mapper and some of the
other issue are valid too but how can we ignore the way we treat Heather.
And I say 'we' because this is our collective responsibility, even if it's
one member doing the harm.
Met vriendelijke groeten,
