Not at all.

Rarely, if ever, are these kinds of situations handled publicly. We
are talking about the conduct and actions of an individual: this
requires a thoughtful consideration from a leadership body, not a call
for public comment. If it did involve a public comment piece, this
would turn into a popularity content, which is not fair and objective.

The CC is specifically empowered to ensure that there is effective
leadership in the community. Previously there have been issues with
various people and leadership groups, and these are always handled

In terms of the the evidence that led the CC to this decision, I am on
the fence. Some of this evidence is likely private, back-channel
stuff, and would not be appropriate to share. On the other hand, I do
believe in transparency.

The key question is: knowing the members of the CC, do you trust that
the CC handled this situation fairly? A lack of visible evidence is
does not mean the CC didn't act in good faith. A lack of confidence in
the CC members to act in good faith is a separate question.
