FWIW, kicking people off the list in such circumstances has generally been acceptable on Wikimedia lists, with or without notice. Though notice is nice and adds to transparency.
For list administration, I note that wikimediauk-l is explicitly a list for "Wikimedians in and interested in the UK" and is not specifically the chapter's list per se (and this distinction is important to some people). So the wikimediauk-l admins are jdforrester (WMF staff), dgerard (volunteer), richard.symonds (WMUK staff) and thehelpfulonewiki (volunteer). James and I were adminstering it since the days of WMUKv1, which we were both on the board of, but we're not actually affiliated with the current WMUK. So I would suggest for the future (1) when kicking someone, say so and why (unless there's a really good reason not to) (2) have a mix of list admins. - d. _______________________________________________ Wikimediaau-l mailing list Wikimediaauemail@example.com https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l
