I believe that the Wikimedia Foundation did the Kenyan Wikimedians wrong by
judging all of us based on one occurrence and purnishing everyone for the
mistakes of a few. The zeal and energy that was there was totally drained
and beginning lacks the power it requires.
In fact, I believe it would have been best to let us do our own house
cleaning then recommend action against any wrong doings.
It is hard to begin anything with the knowledge that there is no trust
between us and the foundation.
Lastly, I would like to ask, what are the chances of appealing the decision
by the foundation to demote us to a user group?
