Someone other than mst obviously owns the domain perl.org. Someone other than mst also has the right to remove him from ops on freenode. One capable individual that comes to mind is "thrig", one organization that comes to mind is http://www.perlfoundation.org/ or any release manager of perl5.
And, one of the things I expect to come out of this would be bogus nonsense claims of passive-aggressive forking -- like the claim you just made to cease. I'm banned from an official medium that can provide feedback, and my contributions are obstructed by one person's very personal desire to continue an age old vendetta. It isn't passive aggression: it is necessity:
- I'm sick of making contributions where the official forum is infested with a moderator that keeps me klined, and shit talks about me behind my back.
- I'm sick of not getting prompt feedback because I'm blocked to the official medium.
