I have already apologised to those on my side of the Guardians split and to officials for the DogWatch incident. I now want to extend that to all of those affected, directly or indirectly. It should not have happened, and I take full responsibility.
But perhaps things have now come to a head, and we can turn a corner. I was pleased to see Mihori’s post in the Centralization thread, but I want to go further, seeking not just more civilised fighting, but actual peace. So I’d like to propose a truce between the factions on the following basis.
All concerned promise to stop provocations of all kinds, on all platforms. This must include disguised provocations such as statements claimed to be merely factual explanation but actually controversial, where no comment is actually necessary. (Of course not all questions need be answered.) Provocations made using anonymous or other accounts are of course also unacceptable! (Sorry again.)
Because it is very obvious that agreement on past events regarding the Guardians is impossible, both sides should stop making any but the most uncontroversial comments on these events, and existing posts, tweets, web pages and public documents that contain such comments should be edited to remove them or deleted altogether.
If that takes a lot of effort, then I’m sorry, but maybe there shouldn’t have been so many comments made. If there’s any doubt about a particular comment it could be quoted or linked in this thread for public discussion – which of course might well open the door to further fighting, but I guess there has to be some method of conflict resolution. (If there are any other ideas on this point I’d be glad to see them.)
Posts, tweets, etc, by the people concerned, but not about Guardians-related events, are of course not a problem.
So for the sake of the Cardano community’s reputation, can we please, finally, put all this behind us?
