In the past you've e-mailed all of us and told us about the situation
and the rest of us agreed with your action. In this case, there was no
e-mail and more then half of the council members didn't see
justification for the ban based on the conversation at hand. While
some of the comments at hand were snide, a lot of the confusion was as
a result of the language barrier. I know the language barrier has
caused a problem for some of us one time or another. In fact, dev-zero
and I have had our share of disagreements as a result of the language
barrier. At the same time, dev-zero and I have worked together on
quite a few projects and had positive experiences together. We decided
in the meeting to let emotions cool and toss it to e-mail. If anyone
wanted to see igli banned, to send an e-mail to all the council
members (it didn't even have to be on the ML) and we'd go from there.
To date, no such e-mail has come. The only e-mails are just throwing
fuel on a fire which no longer exists.
