The name is "Amedee", thank you.

There was some confusion in the notification mail, because the issue would
be presented on two separate meetings, and I could only attend the second.
Apparently the decision was already made on the first meeting, and it was
presented as a final decision, but that wasn't entirely true. NoOp and
myself were still able to present our arguments at the second meeting. I
was really disappointed that nobody else bothered. I worked really, really
hard to be able to attend that meeting. It was only after the second
meeting, after NoOp and myself were heard and our concerns were answered,
that the decision to close sounder was made really, really final.

You can find all of this in the IRC logs.

You may also call yourselves very lucky that I didn't nominate myself,
a) I really don't have the time to do it good.
b) I was a forum admin for a couple of years (JanC can confirm) and I got
fed up with all the whining.
