This is definitely true. He has offered useful commentary, and I
appreciate that. However, I definitely would like to interject that I
think something does need to be done, and I applaud Tantek for taking
action -- the situation was becoming increasingly annoying and. As
someone who has, in another community, had to take moderative action
against a well-intentioned, visible member, I understand how delicate
something like this can be, and I approve of Tantek's decision to
moderate Andy, rather than ban him.
I would also like to thank him for bringing this issue into the
limelight so we can discuss it, and hopefully, help Andy to become a
better member of the community.
