I think that's taking too many steps at once. We should first check what
exactly is being proposed and how this would influence the projects, the
Foundation and maybe other related groups. Only when we find that indeed
there is a large negative impact either on the projects themselves or on the
Foundation's possibilities of hosting and supporting them, are drastic
methods of protest a good idea. And only at that point it could be decided
that turning some site on black would be the best definition of 'drastic
method' for the case.
