Hi Natacha I am not sure this thread is about whether T&S action was in order or not.
Aside the recent WP:FRAM, I am not aware of a single instance where T&S action's was criticized largely by the community or those you described as official representative of movement/chapters. Most opinion expressed at WP:FRAM are mere speculations and relies entirely on what Fram thought might be the reason for their ban. That being said, some members of the community who are familiar with Romaine's past works considered them valuable to our movement and I think that should be respected. Interpreting their comments as endorsement of the behaviour that led to T&S's action and criticising official representative of chapters who pen down a farewell note is inappropriate. Romaine, there are other ways to volunteer and as you may already be aware, you don't have to attend Wikimedia events to add value to our movement. There are plenty of ways to make a difference. Personally, I appreciate your on-wiki works and I hope you will continue the good works. But if you want to quit contributing altogether, I wish you all the best in your future endeavor. Good luck.
