I regret to say that I feel James has abused this forum once again for his own personal agenda, much of which is unrelated even indirectly to the WMF or the Wikimedia movement. Further, I feel that he has done so in a way that is deceptive to members of this mailing list, and that his actions are an abuse of the trust of the members of this mailing list.
Generally speaking, I'm pretty tolerant of people bringing different perspectives and ideas to this mailing list; however, I believe this is a step too far for someone who has been asked in the past on multiple occasions to stay on topic. I am not sure that James needs to remain a contributor to this list.
