not sure about others but, you illegitimatly took over resources like a server
that where donated.
I request again, pick a new name, a new domain, a new server and annouce a fork
Also i request again the roots to resign after this abuse of power. Completely
bypassing public discussion and a vote and to the day keeping alot of
discussions secret and pointing all over the place when people post parts of
the discussion as if such takeover would constitue private communication
