[Community-Discuss] Allegation of Harassment

And see - Sorry Alan, but I view this as entirely unacceptable.

There is precedent at play here - when the NDA violations in the past were admitted - board members were asked to vacate there seats with immediate effect.  Where they chose to be investigated and have hearings held - those hearings were scheduled by the board again - almost immediately - and the time frames for those hearings clearly communicated.

The GC has been tasked to report back to the board with TOR's - that does not even finalize the investigation - that means effectively that the investigation may not start until the 1st of May and there is almost no way that it will be completed before Dakar - and I do not think this community wants to be flying someone - at AfriNIC's expense - to Dakar - when he has clearly violated the NDA.

If the board is NOT willing to act in this situation in a consistent manner with the way they have acted in the past - and is willing to apply a double standard - then the board itself becomes complicit - and again - I reiterate - this now has to get to a point where the community starts to ask itself if the board has gone rogue and is simply protecting its own - in which case - is it perhaps time for the community to take stronger action

Dear Evelyn,

Regardless of which allegations are of more or less concern to the community, all allegations will be investigated.

As the community was informed earlier, the Board has asked the Governance Committee to report back to the Board by 30 April 2018.
