It appears that rasengan (Andrew Lee) of Private Internet Access believes that ownership of the company Freenode Ltd. gives him the right to unilaterally replace the current staff team.
We may have had our disagreements with staff, but freenode being run by a volunteer team, using servers provided by sponsors, is a key reason that we appreciate freenode.
As such, we do not believe that such a unilateral replacement by a corporate interest is appropriate.
If this attemped takeover by Andrew Lee continues, we will be advocating to move our communities elsewhere.
