Matt's behaviour does need addressing, but I don't think this was the right way. We had a good discussion, and have agreed to continue tomorrow, after he's had a chance to talk to others.

Here's a copy of my comment from reddit[1]:

It is interesting that this "transparency" report doesn't include any
details. It doesn't say who was investigated, it doesn't say what they
did, and it doesn't say how it was determined that they're guilty. Very

It's also interesting that they suddenly decided to investigate an
incident that happened two years ago. It almost seems like they didn't
find anything warranting a ban in the original accusation, so they
started digging.

removed it for some reason:
