I cannot tell what was the /intent/ of the WMF when they acted (for 
obvious reasons), but I think that my description of the situation was 
pretty justified — and the message sent to all those desysopped 
volunteers could not have been more clear. If the WMF wants their help, 
why would they desysop them in the first place?

If you had read my e-mail, then I'm sure you noticed that I actually 
asked about the reasons for this decision and its execution, as I am 
unable to find any justification for what happened.

[Yes, I do understand there is a considerable time difference, etc; I'll 
be patiently waiting for a response from the WMF.]
