Discuss issue between Daniel M, Dave B, and Kevin S.

  • Facts:
    • Daniel, Dave, and Kevin were arguing on the mailing list which escalated into legal threats.
    • Someone has asked us to suspend Daniel's membership due to the legal threats. The goal tonight is deescalation. Elly considers suspension escalation.
    • Thinks we should not consider suspension because the legal threats might start being aimed at the hive.
  • If we consider suspension, do we need to suspend everyone involved? Possibly.
  • The conversations on the mailing list were inapropriate, however suspension seems to be an escalation at this time.
  • We should send out an email about this to them, or talk to them in person.
    • We need a third party not involved in this incident; Elly would be a good candidate.
  • This is a wakeup call to fix the bylaws to allow us to deal with issues as such in the future.
  • Date for this bylaws discussion among leadership will be on Thursday, August 18th.
    • This meeting will serve as a forum to discuss and formalize a bylaw change proposal in preparation for submission as a formal vote of the membership.
