Well, the thread that caused Tolriqs ban was created by me. However, the team member garbear answered to implement the requested feature, if there was a client that implements it...
Therefore, I asked Tolriq, as creator of yatse, to implement this feature in yatse and to join the discussion. For a useful discussion about the implemention.
At that moment, I didn't know about the previous (years ago) conflict, Martijn and Tolriq had. For me, it seems that Tolriq is someone who is... a bit direct in his answers. While Martijn feels attacked by this. However this was AN OLD CONFLICT.
In my thread, Tolriq joined the discussion and told about the previous implementation and indirectly criticized that some of his Pull Requests were not merged.
However - I don't know much of the reasons and the previous conflict. The way Tolriq wrote it yesterday wasn't the optimal way.
But, his post would never justify a ban. As a serious member of Team Kodi, a moderator has to be above previous conflicts and to keep cool. In this case, as DaveBlake confirmed, it was a one man decision. And for me, as a third person, it seems to be an unreasonable decision, just reasoned by Martijns personal attitude.
In my opinion, such selfish decision of a single mod is not in the mind of Team Kodi. It should have consequences for the mod, instead of the user... So the excuse "there is also a rule that the actions of one moderator will not be undone by another without their agreement" is embarrassing.
So, members of Team Kodi, please discuss this case. Please make clear rules for mods, and if a mod breaks the rules: It should have consequences, as there are consequences the misbehaviour of normal users!
Btw: There was still no statement from Martijn regarding the ban. His own response was deleted...
@Team Kodi: Please unban Tolriq! His ban was a wrong one man decision and is not in sense of the Team!
