I just want to say while I agree IMO there's a growing disconnect in some
parts of WMF with the communities but it's not happening here. In fact it's
also the other way around. Some people in communities and some communities
in general have been growing too disconnected from the framework they are

I understand but my question is "why". There is no other volunteer group
that has a private policy. How is it different from CU and OS?

Twitter is a company and we are an NGO) BUT since it passed the community
consultation (and I somehow missed it to raise my feedback), I don't want

People who oppose the ban: Are you aware of all aspects and things Fram has
done? Do you have the full picture? It's really saddening to see how fast

Calling gay people "subhuman" is so vile that needs direct action from

The issue is that different wikis are disconnected and don't have proper
