Lee, I removed your admin privileges to stop you from continuing to
edit the protected page describing our membership process.

You edited the membership page, adding incorrect information, ignoring
the notice that the page should only be edited as the result of a
consensus discussion. When I rolled back your changes and asked you to
stop, you admitted that you weren't at the consensus discussion,
hadn't actually read any notes about it, and were just adding
information that you thought was similar to what had been discussed.
Then you edited the page again, so I removed your admin privileges.

Was it also you (IP 71.135.45.119) who edited the anti-harassment
policy page? Perhaps it was someone else. In any event, if
71.135.45.119 is reading: the text on that page is *also* the result
of a consensus process, and should not be edited. In fact, the page
has a banner across the top letting readers know about the policy's
trial period, and how to contribute on Github, which is where we
agreed to work on changes.

-Tom
