I think we're mixing up a few things by now:
- What cases should be handled in public, which shouldn't
- Does DevRel work effectively or not
- The special case of banning people

All I want to say right here is that:
- Not everything needs to be handle loudly and public
  (if I made that impression)
- I do believe in need for fundamental changes on DevRel
  (as introduced in a another thread earlier)

For the rest I propose to take this offline.

Best,



Sebastian
