Hi @mikeadams1. When I had asked how other people feel about recording the DEI meetings, if you had said, "I would prefer to have them recorded so that we who do not attend, can at least follow when it is convenient,” that would have been great. But to me, it felt like you went on a diatribe about how “secrets are lies” and that the DEI Team is actively excluding conversations. You accused me of creating a special privilege or class, and you attacked Jeff for “making policy for Inrupt”. Then you put words into Virginia’s mouth by suggesting that Inrupt has a toxic work environment.
The fact is, Mike, that your statements are aggressive. Your choice of words makes people feel attacked, uncomfortable, and unsafe. And that is not tolerated in either the DEI Team chat, or the Solid community.
Dear community members,
In its meeting of 11 August 2021, the Solid Team has determined that the person with account @mikeadams1 has violated several terms of our community's Code of Conduct. Repeated warning by several members of the community were not followed up on in a satisfactory manner.
Hence, the team has decided to temporarily ban @mikeadams1 for a period of one month, effective immediately. This ban can be lifted from 11 September 2021 onwards.
Relevant parts of the Code of Conduct include:
We thank the person involved and the community in advance for treating this incident with serenity.
