This argument doesn't really hold. You can get useful email addresses
everywhere. You don't need a gimp.org address for being able for sending
emails from home or from work using the same sender addresses. All the
other benefits of the gimp.org email alias that you mentioned are pretty
much void, because you can easily get another email addresses that
offers the same benefits.
The point here is that Carol is continuously abusing her email address.
I have asked her several times not to use it any longer but she ignored
this request and continues to send mails as [EMAIL PROTECTED] Not only to
this list but she has also attacked and insulted people in private
emails. Multiple instances have been reported. Some to this list, others
to me or to other GIMP developers. This is unacceptable behaviour and we
need to do something about it. We can't (and shouldn't) stop her from
expressing her opinion (or however you want to call it), but we should
make sure that her words don't appear as being in any way official. If
this means that we all need to stop using our gimp.org email addresses,
then we should consider to do this. Or we need to find a different
Gimp-developer mailing list
