That is what I have been getting at.

I also suspect that any additional measures the AC would need to take to 
execute their desire to modify how members of the community interact 
with the community would lead me (and I would hope others) to call for 
and support their resignation.

There have been a few troubling AC actions recently and this is one of them.

I do believe they are operating with the best of intentions, but 
actively muzzling AC community members would be crossing a line.

This community enjoys and expects a tremendous amount of transparency 
and open interaction and I for one do not support any modification of that.
