Philippe, you're right, but MZ is obviously too angry and personally 
involved right now to take his words too literally and personally 
against you. The most he could ask from you is a comment on how 
frequently you have to be the one "pushing the button" against the 
community. (Very often, is my guess.)

As for the decisions, it's clear that they come from the top and what 
they mean. Assuming that a board of trustees still exist (hey, did the 
bylaws amendment to keep you functioning have a weird effect and send 
you all to outer space?), they're maybe the ones who could have 
something more to say?
