It seems very strange to me to discount the mere possibility that AffComm
may, in the course of its work, discover that specific individuals are
untrustworthy or impossible to work with - or that signals of such a status
must be resolved before collaboration can continue. We don't exist in a
world where entities matter but individuals do not. It would appear that
AffComm is trying very hard not to publicly discredit any individuals. By
senselessly ruling out that this could be true, you're unnecessarily
pushing them to 'out' potential misconduct in a way that won't help the
movement or any future Philippines-based affiliate.
