True. But no such reasons exist in this case.

I seem to remember a couple of nominations being discussed.

My point was (and Michael confirmed it) about going behind people's backs
to have their account removed. And that's what Michael was trying to do. He
didn't write (for example, in a reply in -cvslog) that he'd propose to
suspend Uoti's write access if Uoti didn't start behaving. No, he mailed
root at mphq directly, saying he didn't want to risk being ignored. That's
what I call underhanded. So I apologize for suspecting Michael of cowardice,
but I stand by my other statement.

oppression to develop psychic muscles.
