Not really. Speaking as one of the team's other admins (even though p1otr has taken this all on himself), I fully support the action. I agree it's unfortunate that it came to this, but I believe that, for now, it's for the best. If we're going to work as a team, then there has to be collaboration and a willingness to work within team norms. Don't just judge this one case. I believe it's best if Thomas takes a break from the team. If he's ever going to be a part of it in the future, he's going to have to be more collaborative. I'm not going to get in a long debate, but there comes a time in any volunteer group when you have to decide to cut your losses. Hopefully we get this sorted after a short break from the team. Scott K
