>The DWG's role is to arbitrate issues in the OSM geodatabase. It has no role regarding content issues outside of that database. If you wish to make a complaint regarding community representation, please make that to the Board. Note of course, that the existence of a Code of Conduct is one the the issues actively being discussed by the Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee recently activated by the Board.

If you want to express a different vision, opinion or whatever of course you can, and there is few police on the internet that will stop you.  But that is not the case here, if you act under the OSM name and pretend to represent the community or a community platform, then it is no more then fair our DWG and OSMF can have a say about that.  And about referring to your platform from OSM branded resources.
>>And even more, if you incite violations against our basic rules and code of conduct, from external sites, they have in my opinion the mandate from the community to ban and stop you from doing that.
