{Wheels.19.15}: heads up, hosts! {elakin} Fri, 04 Feb 2011 12:30:24 EST (26 lines)

i'm posting this in multiple forums in an attempt to make the many
forum hosts aware of what's going on at the cafe management/board level.

board secretary carlos {salsero} has involved himself in a
forum-specific matter being heard by the PR WG, and is threatening to
take board action to overturn a longstanding forum-specific ban on a
participant and to de-host one (or more?) of the forum's hosts.

this is a significant development since, up until now, hosts have been
given much latitude to run their forums the way they believe is in the
best interests of the forum and its participants.  grievances were
once heard by the ombudsman or PR WG, but now it appears that carlos
is changing that protocol in favor of direct board involvement and
oversight.

given this new development in cafe protocol and what appears to be
complete abandonment of the "federated model" that carlos promised to
adhere to, i felt it was important to inform all the hosts of the cafe
that they will apparently be subject to the board's approval of any
and all actions they may take, and could possibly be de-hosted based
on the whim or caprice of carlos.



those who wish to learn more about this can read the entire thread at
