Several moderators, in a span of a week, have been giving him infractions
and have accumulated 75 points which according to the rules[1] is banned
for 30 days. If he keeps creating and posting from new accounts, and reach
100 infraction points, he will automatically get banned permanently.

I'm not sure about mailing list rules. I don't even know who the admin is
now.

Neil I was never an enemy, I have always respected council and what they have done, especially during your term. No one has done more damage to the council name than Estel. Did he deserve a community device yes, did he act childish afterwards, yes. I want to publicly state some old maemo users asked me to run so Estel didn't get voted into council but sadly he did. We dug our graves and now we can lay in it. Please ban Estel from the mailing list or at the very least limit him from number of mails he can send to the
Mailing list daily. I want Estel to stay around. The old Estel, not the current one.

This: "because maemo.org is overgoing "hostile takeover" by so-called
Community Representatives?"



Give it a rest already, it's getting boring, and you are starting to come
across as a petulant child. No one is performing a hostile takeover".
These folks volunteered, and the community by and large, supports them and
appreciates their willingness to work for the community. You are rapidly
destroying whatever positive benefit you've brought to the Maemo community
over the years-you should reflect on that. Maybe maemo.org isn't the place
for you anymore, if you disagree so strongly with the way the community is
headed-if that's the case, I wish you well in wherever you end up. If not,
and you chose to stay, you should reflect on why you feel the need to
continually, and relentlessly (and from my point of view: baselessly) attack
the current BoD and Council. Stand back and let them do their work, and if
you don't like the way it's being done, you have the same choice you would
have with your own country's government: either vote for someone else, or
run for office yourself.



Disagreeing with decisions made, is not why you were banned (from my point
of view), and, as a lowly maemo.org member with only a few karma, I fully
support the actions taken against you so far. I also wish that you aren't
permanently banned, and can come to terms with the direction the community
is headed and can once again be a productive member of that community-but
not if you cannot stop the nonsense both on TMO and in the mailing list.

While I also doesn't like his tone, lets be serious here. You would be
extremely happy, if your account, PM's, and all posts would disappear, just
because maemo.org is overgoing "hostile takeover" by so-called Community
Representatives?

And this part, especially:
> The attitude and wording shown in your email might provide enough reason
> to justify that decision now, even if it was initially wrong?

I hope, that you're not talking serious. Here, in Poland, this was way of
thinking, that Communist dictatorship presented for 50 years, and I'm not
eager to see it again, anywhere.

Let's ban everyone, and delete everything, just in case. Those, who will
react with respect and love for new Dictatorship, will be proven worthy.
Others? It's their fault, after all, they reaction *after* is enough to
justify moderation abuse *before*.
---

No matter of his inappropriate wording, he should be - first of all -
excused by people responsible.

Also, I can hardly imagine, how ivgalvez can stay in Board and Council
without burning to red (through pink and violet) from shame.

But, considering low morals of most people being Maemo "rulers" now, he
won't have any problem with this, probably... We already had Chair being
glue to chair, despite numerous fails, and overall catastrophical results of
anything, that he touched. I don't expect Ivan to present more ammount of
personal honour, sadly.

Now, feel free to ban me permanently from maemo.org, for writing the above.
If this is how this community looks now - with losers appointed to TMO
moderators, rogue IRC chanops, hopeless Board that is too "high" to
communicate with Community without Public Relation Department, and
marionette Council - I don't want to be a part of this anymore.

After all, it's only 50 days to zero-hour (unless Nokia save the day, and
decide to pay longer). Only one hope, now, is in Maemo's FOSS spirit, taking
shelter somewhere else, due to work of really dedicated people. Sure,
maemo.org domain is lost to "hostile takeover" by compromitted (and
compromised) Foundation, but fortunatelly, it's not the thing, that matters
most.

I'm really sure, that Maemo's spirit will be preserved in other, more
friendly place.

Hey Folks,

It was me who banned JCDenton and aquamarine aswell and I added some more points
to Estels account 'after' he was banned for one month already (Letsee account
got him some extra juice).

Estel got banned for 3 days initially for being not so nice to people...
Clear rules state 'do not have a second account beside', starting with Letsee
which was not posted from at first so I left it alone but made other mods aware
of it. Some one noticed him posting on that account, banned it permanently and
added points to Estel's account... 1 month ban.

I did not follow the IP after that till someone pointed at JCDenton considering
to be Estel, checked the IP again and voila another account shows... seems Estel
did use a not working fake mail account and was forced to open another.
JCDenton got a "One-Touch-Ban and Clean" click which is only possible with
accounts not posted much and newly created (to ban Spambots).

For the screenshot Reggie made available: I think he missed to blur the top. He
has a strict policy when it comes to securing or sharing privat data. I can
assure you that 'yes' it was a search for a single IP and they matched Estel
JCDenton Letsee and aquamarine while in the picture JCDenton has no more posts
as I deleted them so no match for posts.

Estel, I sent a warning out to you at least twice. There are rules and if you are
not up to playing by them you may leave or get banned. Your choice.

Regards,
Ruediger Schiller

Thank you for fresh, clear, and sane opinion. I also think, that we all need to take deep breath, state basic principles, and reconstruct what happened. So, point 1, about basic principles:

I think it's clear to any civilized person, and no one will try to disagree with you, here. Hurting innocents, for "higher case", then justifying it afterwards, is lack of civil responsibility, one of worst examples. It should be fought with fire in both small things (like here), and big ones - the latter seed from the former, and finally, result in great catastrophes.

Thus...

I have been banned due to, exactly, this post:
http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=1287822&postcount=48

Yes, seriously. For our unbeliveably fair and neutral moderator, chemist, it was enough for ban. What is more spicy, this exact same case was reviewed earlier, by moderator sjgadsby, and he just warned every participant (including me), to not continue. His recommendations were followed to the single line - yet, after 4-5 days, chemist decided, that he need to show his presence and how important he is, issuing ban. Of course, he haven't punished anyone else arguing there - I said, that his neutrality is legendar, didn't I?

While it was clearly unfair, I have *never* mentioned it in public. I have created account to contact administrators about mentioned doubts, and I have denied (in polite message) Woody's lie (done on purpose) about my disappearing being my attempt to scam people, that pre-ordered replacement bodies for N900. This sole reaction - in defense of collaborative project - was cause of extending ban to 6 December 2012.

Great job, chemist! You have banned someone out of blue sky (aquamarine) and we would never know about it, if your madness wouldn't result in banning JCDenton! Let's light a candle for aquamarine, as - whoever she/he was - it's probably lost to Community, with all her/his potential.

Furthermore, you seem to be quite proud of banning innocent people for "higher cause", just because it seemed to you, that they may be me?

Maybe you have banned someone else "for me", too? C'mon, share your great deeds with us.

bullshit - Letsee was new account, yet, single post from there was left in place. You have banned JCDenton using post removal, due to plain laziness.

Not to mention, that your "theory" proved to be wrong, as it was assumed on sole NAT IP of provider, which is very risky way of banning people, and every beginning admin/moderator know that.

Now, Mr. Failman, instead of excusing JCDenton, you're again proud of yourself!

Nice story. Still no idea, how you can share with us such lack of responsibility, skills, and just plain brainless actions, without burning from shame.

So, basically, you just confirmed your guilt, without any reegrets?

Frankly - I see it as personal offense, when you suggest I might be breaking your pathetic "rules" to take part in so corrupted, decomposed, and pathetic forum as TMO. It was wrong from the start, and now, it become decomposing swamp, plagued by brainless, egomaniac mods, that didn't care for hurting innocent people, if it boost own ego enough.

After what you have done, by banning at least two innocent people (maybe more, who knows), just because you "though" they may be me, you're not only complete ZERO as a moderator. You're zero as member of community, too. Be gone, in all shame possible.
